Ah, well then you're moving from my financial restrictions to my time restrictions ;-).

Much like Karlos' I'm afraid. I'd probably still be running the terrible originals but I literally had to walk the bike down my hill to work because the noise from those brakes was the worst I've ever heard and I didn't want to piss the neighbours off! And theyre weird brake blocks similar to v-brakes so I couldn't just switch the blocks.

One day I'll get all my bikes set up exactly as I want them!

Nice. Looks like it was meant to be just like that. Much cleaner without cheaply plastic bits. I should get one of mine built up now I've seen this.

It has come up very nice and shiny there. I was meant to be building my 1990 unicorn bike Seeker but 1989 look so much better made. Mines a lot more scratched though. Yeah well done, keep us posted and grab some more pics!
