Looking good, I think that groupset will allow you to put the power down and see what the frame is capable of, without worrying about knackering expensive NOS parts!
As an observation - you've got to get some photos taken away from that red garage door! - Its sapping the colour out of the frame! Also the curve of the rear brake against the horseshoe stay is pretty smart - lets have some pics please!
Matt, that's music to my ears, or as I'm reading this, should that be eyes? Whatever, my bikes are built to be ridden, which is what I do with them. I have recently had a blow out of an M900 rear mech on my other Roberts, which has necessitated a replacement. This was not too difficult or expensive, but it will be increasingly so as time passes. Modern mechs allow me the luxury of using the bike to the maximum of my ability, without having to worry about breakages, other than the walk back to the car.
As for the garage door... erm yes sorry, but there is no way I am taking photo's of my bikes with the mess that is my workshop as a background. In addition, it was such a terrible day when I took the pics, that it was hard to get the shutter speed on the camera right.
I'm due to meet up with my daughter at one of the Bristol trails very soon, and promise some before and after pictures.
