Fantastic job , well done ! Who did you get to refinish the frame ? Didn't think anyone is interested in rechroming an old frame.

Love the color, love the polished details, love the build. But the rims... I feel that they are too... fat?
I know, its a bit late, but would you try to fit a "normal" sized front wheel with a silver rim? Just to see the difference?
:D

i'm awaiting some other wheels with a lower rim height, but i'd like to use panaracer 26x2.1 so the tires won't be that skinny I'm afraid
