I acquired the frame last year :) I was going to wait 'till I had all the parts before starting the thread, but the 'Britsh Steel' thread got me started on it :lol:

So, out with the polishing kit before taking some pics.....

Image

The frame has come up really well, with a nice deep lustre to the paintwork. The pics don't show it off that well unfortunately :roll:

I plan on a mostly M900 spec and it has taken a while to find nice stuff that isn't too expensive :shock:

Chianset with Middleburn ti bolts

Image

It's really rather clean :D

Image

As are the STi units :D

With a nod to Dave Lloyd's 'roadie' heritage; a Dura-ace headset is fitted.

That's all for now :)

Cheers

That frame looks fantastic, I too tried to score this from the website, but he refused to sell even at way above his asking price. Can't wait to see it built up, I don't think it needs the gold middleburn bolts though....

I have to say that, whilst this is not exactly my cup of tea, I suspect the finished bike is going to be pretty damn amazing... 8)
