Finally got round to finishing this project this week

Thought I would post a before and after shot of the bike, one naked with no decals and another of the finished bike

Luckily the frame has the original extended dropouts, so it can be run as a single speed or geared version, think the people who know me can guess how I will be running it

Current set up includes ~ Bullseye Cranks with my spacer kit so I can run it with a standard current Shimano External BB, Paul Components Hubs and Stoplight brakes, Bonty Race Fork and finally a nice Syncros Ti seatpost.

Could do with a slightly nicer stem and maybe that Syncros Ti handlebar :wink:

Beautiful Gil.

The little splattering of blue looks great with the decal bands.

Agree you should change the stem, and maybe the QRs too?

Very nice though!

I'm very much liking the Bullseyes. Decals look stellar, as usual.
