I have finally acquired one in my preferred MONSTER size :lol:

Not much to see, but I am thinking SILVER/POLISHED (the frame) and RED parts for this, although I don't think it will be ready any time soon. :wink: :D

Cheers...Nick

I am thinking that you are planning a project of vandalism. There aren't enough red paces to go round as it is!

Keep it rouge! Although a little faded it looks to be in fine fettle. Pollishing it will only look good for 5 minutes and then require an endless routine of keeping it buffed to show it at its best. The only real way to keep it shiny would be to have it re-annodised in silver...but if you are doing that you may as well have it re-done in red.

Personally id keep as is!

Well after taking into account the above....I'm still going to have it reanodised in silver i'm afraid.
Here are a few new things that I have bought so far.
Don't worry, do have extremely long arms :D

Cheers...Nick

What happened? Did you re-anodize? Interested to know how you got on if so.

As a thread with no build is now frowned upon, I thought I would update with....No build :D

Frame and parts will be done next Friday (only sent them on 7th June, so not taken too long :D )

Frame to be polished and then silver anodised, parts sent are to be red, and I have chucked in some pics of all the parts I have managed to gather along the way. Once it comes back, it shouldn't actually take that long to finish. Then I can start on the Raleigh.

Cheers...Nick.

Bits to be anodised:

Looks like that will be a very special build.

I'll look forward to the updates, but that's a cracking start.
