Very nice mate.

Have to say the devil is in the details though - lose the bar ends and get a more period saddle. I'd bin the srp stuff. That sucker must be 88 vintage, way before anything like that was about.

When the stickers arrive will be spot on.

That is a beaut. I've got to agree about the saddle though, it does look a bit out of place.
I'm not so against the barends.

It would be interesting to get '88 vintage Muddy Fox, Saracen and Orange frames all painted in the same colour and seeing who could tell them apart .
