I can't tell you how many of my limbs I'd sell to have one of those in my garage. It's going to look spectacular when it's done.

Finally completed!

I’m well chuffed with this and consider it my best build to date...

Big shout out for Gil M for the outstanding decals and also to John Deverill on here who helped me refine the pace forks inc new elastomers so they are as good as the rest of the bike.

Absolutely no dents to this frame and it’s even more shiny in the flesh.

Only rode it in the street to tune it but it rides superb!

I’ll add a full build list very soon.

Hope you enjoy the pics (albeit it was spitting with rain :( ...)

Thank you...
I’m also open to suggestions as I like the purple theme and was thinking of purple bars and maybe more period skinwall tyres. I did toy with purple nipples (on the bike before you ask) but wanted to just get it finished.
As it’s a keeper it may progress and get a bit more exotic as we go....

Just the right amount of purple already I'd say. I'd keep the Orange bars as well. Good luck in BOTM.
