If nothing else, I must be a contender for the slowest build! :lol:

Next time there is a regional meet we should bring our Fuquays . They shall know us by our knackered wrists from riding Gumbos.

Coll color… I love chocolate !
But, it's only my opinion, I don't agree with the red anodized component. I would prefer gold, honey leather :D .

Good job for the logo drawing…

Interesting for the brooks bolt tensioner. But how did you remove the old bolt ? On a new brooks, the tension is too high for unscrew…
