I'm not sure it's my cup of tea just yet, although from here the finish looks good. Looking forward to seeing it built so i can say :shock: wow! :D

That is a lovely colour... something that I have been thinking would look good for a while.

Mmm... looking forward to the rest of the build as time permits.

Duck egg blue is exactly what it's called!

Hoping to have the build finished by mid May.

Will post some progress pics along the way.

Progress at last.
Had a couple of changes of plan - gone for M900 cranks, saving the blue Middleburns and Hope wheels for my E3.

Just need to fit cantis, chain and grip, set up brakes and gears, then apply the new decals and it's done.
About time!

Looks lovely.

I have the same age and colour, (silver/grey) couldnt afford a new paint job, so just went for Yellow Decals. Cant wait to see yours finished. Great bikes.

:)
