Would be interested to know what that shade of orange is? Is it metallic (it's hard to tell from the photos)?


It's RAL 2004 Reinorange (Pure Orange) - not metallic. I really like it!

Got it finished the night before the birthday.

There's a bit of an issue with the canti hanger binding on the headset top race - it's not possible to tighten the top nut enough. I'll have to sort that out but otherwise, I'm really pleased with it.

Nice job 8) 8)

Here's how it was previously, although a few modifications were made after this.....

She's really pleased. She doesn't find the saddle too comfortable, but understands that comfort comes second to the look!
