Sorry, but I'm bumping this bike up. I love it and it makes me smile everytime I see it in the cellar with the other bikes.
Need to go on a RB ride!!

Nice classic iconic bike. I think a Karakoram is a future project for me...

You are very kind. :-)

I think I did a good job on it - it was my first ever restoration and I'm proud of it. I think I could do a better job next time - I'd love to do something like a Grove or Rocky Mountain, maybe something with an unusual paint job or elevated chainstays.

However with my line of work I'm afraid this will probably be my only resto as I just don't have the money for another one. I have my Trek and an Alpinestars, both bought for next to nothing, which will have to be sold as it is to recoup some money. :-(

Thanks all. :-)

Thanks for bumping this Rob - I missed it first time around.

A great story well told & a beautiful bike at the end of your efforts that clearly shows the love you put into building it

Nice one :D
