Not technically my bike, I built it for my brother-in-law to meet his needs. I got hold of the frame and forks for next to nothing and already had the wheels.
As it came:

And these are the not-quite complete photos (I added mudguards and a rack after this, but haven't got pictures of it completed):

I know it won't be to everyone's taste, but I was building it for my brother-in-law and he's really happy with it. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with quite how smooth it rode and had good fun testing it, despite the riding position being a bit more upright than I usually ride and the gearing being lower than my single speed.

Looks quite nice to me, just don't like the bars but put simply it's one more retro bike that was almost on the skip and now it's a tidy rideable bike again. :D
