Note the absence of the FAT city cycles logo on the upper section of the seat tube, all the UK team bikes were pained without this for some reason.

I think the logo on the upper section of the seat tube was not always present, regardless of whether it was a UK model or not.

yes i have seen the other one one here but its such a shame that the, obviously talented, painter had to ruin an otherwise flawless job by painting the logos onto the frame - look at the location of the "chris chance logo on the chain stay!!!??? and the rest are off too , which is understandable due to the difficulty of replicating such intricate details.

The build will be as close to hemmings as possible - i will need some help sourcing parts, namely:

Mag 21 1inch
Blue Moby
XT Rapid fire
