I was going to wait till it was all done to post this up but its taking a bi longer than I would like.

I bought the frame and forks off Adrian (Coleman) a little while ago and only had one thing in mind for it. Adrian kindly sent the frame to Argos for me and so the journey starts. As with all these/my projects they take way longer so what was a six week time line is so far 6 months :roll:

Not much more to say at the moment so I'll let the pictures do the talking :)

How I bought the frame off Adrian. It might look familiar as its the one on the first page of the British Steel thread started by Adrian.
