Mmm. That is nice.

Saw one of these in a local ish bike shop the other day, they look even better in the flesh.

Really, really like this. Well done. I love the mix of old and new. Looking at doing something semi-similar with a Dyna Tech.

I think it is a good mix and works well, but it is heavily leaning to modern. I have some M739 derailleurs and v-brakes to fit at some stage which will make it look more retro, but the WCS bar/stem and white Fox forks just dominate really! In a former life it looked like this:

I think the bike's attitude with the rigid fork looks all wrong, but Wadsy's re-build was spot on.

Very nice bike though I think the stem should match the seat post. White doesn´t look good to me...:)
