Just finished building up my (owned since new) Caldera.

Spec to follow as I'm off out on her now! :D :D :wink:

Would like your thoughts as she now does not resemble anything retro - but is retro at heart.

I think the only original bits are the frame (obviously) and the seatclamp :oops:

Any hoo some pics - Admitedly not very good ones :oops:

Decals are ACE - Thank you Gil_M

Thank you Argos - awesome work! :shock:

Very nice, I like it and the colour aswell, did Argos put those extra cable stops on top tube to run rear disk brakes?, nice mixture of modern and retro bits together, nice result :)

Yes at £8 a pop :oops:

But seriously they have been added with such attention to detail.

Good chaps there.
