please do something about the saddle, a white Turbo or similar would look much better.

Even with a somewhat anachronistic saddle, that is a seriously elegant bike

The original finish looks blooming marvelous

Well done, great build, great find on the frame!

Nice looking bike, just not a big of that seat! But that's a personal choice, otherwise looks fantastic. I've had a Harry Quinn road frame long time ago!

A few changes:

Flite added, bar/ stem dropped in height, seat height and angles jiggled

Main addition is some M730 hubs on Mavic 231 and the the old Tioga tyres added.

Nice clean build you have, like it very much.

Only thing I cant get used to is the nose of the seat pointed down, see that on may peoples build...why?

Cheers,
Martin

yes, it does need adjusting a bit but the 'gentleman's fruit & veg' can get in the way.
