Currently set up as an ahead headset, so the one piece bar thing wouldn't really work without fitting a new steerer and King top cap

Problem with old bars is they are so narrow, 560mm or less, riding it as a single speed you need a bit of leverage on the hills so thing I will leave it with the more current 620mm Bonty ones for now ~ not period correct, but usable.

Front QR will become a Cook Bros one shortly, back wheel is bolted and needs to be really to avoid Single Speed wheel twist :wink:

Thanks for the fork check, was never sure which one it was

Now just to get some better weather and get out on it :)

Yeah you're probably right about the bars,and I bet most you find will have been cut down even more! I'll be putting the leverage theory to the test with my ss Attitude build,should be interesting :)

Now that is nice, especially with the new decals. Look forward to seeing this at Dalby but not looking forward to keeping up with it!!!

Top marks Gil. The cranks and hubs are very nice touches. You will enjoy riding it.

Good job Gil. Maybe some amber walls as well?

Take some closeups of your decal set please :)


Am I right in thinking the original square edge decals were made from Mylar?
