hi
very nice brodie. you've done a fine job there.
almost looks like`TOAD' green. 8)
you'll have to try and make it over to Toxik Harald's bike show
in richmond with it in may 2014.
we are planning on showcasing brodie bikes next year.
would be a welcome asset. check out the threads on the past two years on here.

My kind of bike, what a beauty. I like the plain, simple components used that do not distract the beauty of frame and fork. Black Turbines LPs just suit it very well.

Very nice!

That's yummy, and not a million miles away from what I'm currently doing to my Dekerf.

Heck of a shade of green, very 8)

i like everything but the tyres… but that's me.
