Red outer ring.....Done!



I think its finished now, nothing else is jumping out at me as needing to be done.
I'm happy with it, so I have updated the pics on this thread and I'll see what you lot think.

not to be curmudgeonly, but red outer ring = no red bolts imho.

I did wonder when I put the chainring on. It was a case of standing back, stroking my chin and 'hmmm'.
I still have the original black ones, so may drop them back in.

Got the red Hope seatclamp, and lost the faded bottle cage.

Whilst its not in my possession yet, I have also bagged a Spin rear wheel from MadCowKev, which I think will look the business alongside my Pro-Circuit/Mavic 231 spare front wheel.

Am also getting Gil_M to make up some 'Pickle' decals for my top tube, in the same style and colour as the RTS-2 decals, which I have decided to leave in place.

Not much left to do to it now, other than ride the damn thing :wink:

Thanks for the comments
And regarding the offer for some Quadra's, I have decided to stick with the non-period correct Darts, and am about to sink the funds instead into the Spin rear wheel off MadCowKev :wink:
