Finished rebuild on my old kili just in time to ride it in the Great Yorkshire Bike Ride next weekend (Wetherby to Filey). Ended up with a two tone paint job after repairing major crash damage to top tube and unable to get a good paint match. The local powder coater didn't know how the body filler used in the top tube would react, so I painted it with appliance white enamel instead. I think it looks ok. Spd's and Vee's I know aren't truley retro, but it rides and stops well and it's been built to ride. :D
Give me a shout if you see me on the GYBR next weekend :!:

That is stunning, all credit to. I forgot all about these elevated chainstay Saracens until I saw yours, really nice bike.

Heard of kick stands but not stick stands, who's the distributor?
