Yep, so pretty much finished*


*Although the new and very black seat pin says it's 26.8mm the damned thing doesn't fit (any ideas) - interior of tube is free of paint and clean. It goes in but is just that little bit too tight. Aside from that, the back brake will go on shortly (just haven't had the time) and I need to get the silver aspects of the headset assembly coated black.

She rides SO well; planted, precise, silent (gotta love single speed), responsive (no loss of power) and nimble. In the metal, even though she's had a modern overhaul, her lines are obviously very very retro and makes her stand out as a classic. I'm extremely chuffed, not to mention proud.

Thanks for your support.

Nice work - check out my recently built Orange P7 ( up for sale - by the way ) - built with a classic theme in mind.
