At long last the build is nearing completion, some sneaky pics here. The rest will follow along with a spec list etc, the photo's don't do the paintwork justice but here goes anyway

Nice looking bike...

...but you might want to shift that Sharkfin round the stay a bit; the top of the fin should be pointing at the rim 8)

Very nice job done on this fruity number, the mix of old and new works well, was that your intention? Would have like to have seen Cantis being used on it, just my opinion but shame to see the Canti Cable Support redundant on the frame. but a great build, any future plans for it, apart from getting it dirty ;)

Jussa :D

Thanks all - for the kind words, yes thought about the Canti's - might be something to do in the future. The 'new' was a deliberate to make it a little more usable hence the comfy seat and road bias tyres.

As for using it - I doubt she'll see propper mud unfortunatley, I'll leave that for the modern contraption
