Here are some pics of my progress. I haven't had much time to do anything except bolt on parts and overhaul the headset.

what a great bike!!! If I had no budget limitations and was more patient with finding parts, this could be my bike.
Oh, and the frame size should be a bit smaller too :lol:

Boy oh boy, that is a work of art. My new fave bike, hands down.

As much as I love arch supremes, you gotta put a set of canti's on that puppy.




(I have a NOS set of red ControlTechs's that would look amazing!..)

My dream v brake combo would be pauls and arch supremes . . . . .but, I have to agree. Its a crime to have a canti bridge and not use it :lol:

Regardless its going to be a stunning ride.

Its gorgeous.
May be you could try bit wider tires to match that frame.
Schwalbe makes KOJAK in 2.0 and its very light: 460g i guess.

I know. I have been wrestling with that decision myself. I have some silver Graftons, but already have a Klein Attitude that has silver Graftons.

What cantis would you use?
