Thanks! Yes, it is a great climber. This is my first elevated chainstay bike. I had always heard they were great climbers, now I know.

What color were your Funks?

Wow, can't believe I missed the finished build :oops: :oops:

Absolutely stunning build, with a great choice of components - articularly like the pic of it being ridden down the road.. 8) 8)

One of my favourite all-time retro bikes Funks, and you've done the build proud, 8) 8)

Thank you. It was a fun build. All the while I couldn't believe that after all these years I finally had a Funk. :D

Thank you. It was hard not to just slap anything on it so I could ride the bike.
I am really happy with it. However, I just finished my 22" Dolomite. Pictures coming soon...
