Very nice best clock work iv'e seen in years top job matey, i think that stem you have looks really nice goes with the seatpost black top half 8) the other stem mite look to over the top

After trying the syncros on the bike,I've decided to stick with the original stem. The chunky-ness of the syncros just seemed to overpowering for the classic lines of the frame.
Just waiting for the grips and then it's finished

Nice clockwork mate. Sorry that I sold my orange/white one last year :-(

Random question but are the photos above taken in a place called Milbourne st Andrew? I used to live there and there was a farmyard/barn behind our house that looked just like that.
