This is your Pièce de résistance, and a good way to take a break, if that's the case (I still say noooo).

I would love to carry on building, but the fact is my health is such that I 'm not up to it. Fingers crossed for some improvement so I can get back out in the cave :) - we shall have to wait and see :?

Thanks for the positivity chaps :)

Martin, i hope you are well..!

I just wanted to take another look at this bike as its voting time for bike of the month.

Lots of top class entires as usual, and some serious heavy metal.

I have to say, i think you have surpassed all your previous builds with this one, the spec is very well chosen, all the parts are in top class condition, the work you ended up having to do on the stem, has really paid off and is a real credit to you.

Everything looks like it was ment to be there, nothing oddball sticking out like a sore thumb. and all carefully assembled on what i can only say is the Only one of its Kind, that i Know of still in one piece.

A Handbuilt Reynolds 653at frame Built by an English 753 Master craftsmen and ex-professional English champion.

Add to this the amazing Original paintwork, (that is in itself a work of art imho)

I really think, you have done a great job.

Big Respect.

As I said, not my cup of tea (I actually don't like that colour scheme...), but a fantastic build nonetheless; must ride like a dream 8)
