Excellent work.

Reminds me of the Freewheel catalogue of the era. Hailed as the bike of the future. Inspiarational and out of reach.

I did wonder when somebody would appear with one!

This has to be the best example of a retro bike, loving the build progress reports showing the effort that has been grafted to produce an absolutley stunning machine ,done in true Dr S style 8)

Fantastic Si, a real labour of love that has been worth every second of your slog.

So what you riding Saturday?

Quite simply stunning – beautifully observed detailing – nothing better than recreating the original in my opinion…

… Congratulations

The question of riding it or not is a toughie, but I guess you need to ask yourself why you put that much effort into the project. To hold the physical representation of the image, or to live a dream :wink: I'd get out there and ride it (you can always give it a respray and get another set of decals – you've done it once)
