Very, very nice.

Are my eyes deceiving me, is there rust on that small ring?

Wow. Bloody hell that's lovely.

Good shots too, nice backdrop, sets off the colour nicley. :wink:

Looks so great with all black sniny components. (Put a black granny ring on...it'll perfect it.) - but that's nit picking...stunning bike.

:D
