I love the patina on that bike, it's nice to see a restoration when the owner hasn't felt the need to re-paint it. Great work!

I've obviously failed to keep this thread updated! Making up for that (maybe) with today's last-minute (or past last-minute maybe) entry in March 2014 BoTM.

The big omission picture-wise was when the bike got a nice workout on a fun ride with some friends 2 summers ago. A bunch of us attended a big opening party for the SFO Museum exhibition and decided to have a fun, vintage ride from Fairfax the following day. Here are pics from that which show the Potts. All these pics were taken by others that day (so photo credits to ER, MJ and DD):

Riding to the pre-ride meeting location:

Meeting at the pre-ride meeting location (aka Java Hut):

Mid-ride (top of Repack):

Regrouping and assessing the damage (bottom of Repack):

Post-ride meeting location (aka Gestalt Haus)... One of these is out of it's league:
