Thanks for the positive comments lads, I am pretty proud of what I achieved with my first build.
that's really cool, curious though how long is the toptube? it looks really long for the size of the frame.
impressed with the sheer amount of mint parts though.
The top tube measures 23" centre to centre. I am 6ft and it is the perfect size for me with the 130mm stem.

But you achieved the result you were after and it is a stunning build so the cost becomes less significant. How long did it take you to collect the complete 'set' of parts?
Congratulations on a great bike, absolutely beautiful. Is there anything at all you'd change on it?
It only took me about 2 months from go to whoa to collect the parts, like I said before I became pretty obsessive. The only things I would change are the cranks to 175mm instead of 170mm and I'd like black chainrings but they would have to be NOS for me to consider it. I'd also like a set of NOS Porc blackwalls instead of the reproductions but as you know they are pretty hard to come across.
