Since this decision appears to be tending towards the democratic, I'll throw my lot in with the white bar crowd.

White. No Yellow. No White. Yep White it is, though Yellow is good too.

Think it's gonna have to be the white!

Quick update - managed to spend some time on the build today with my 9 year old helping out although cleaning up 20+ years grime out of the freewheel took a lot longer than I had anticipated :(

So not done yet - but looking much more like a bike. Well pleased with the crank set-up, tried it with a black spider too but much prefer the contrast between black, white and silver.

Hopefully will have this nailed over the next few days

Sweet! Definitely white bars.

Is that front tyre on the right way round?

Pretty sure it is but have been messing around with the bullseye hub to try and limit the play to 'bearable'. Some movement at the rim was a design feature tho at the moment the amount of play will drive me mental! Will have another look at it tomorrow
