Was it tempting to put drop bars and a disk drive on? :D


Honestly, no. The JT C-26 Replica has been done.

Fantastic job he did too. So yeah, I was looking for more of a period-correct race build with an homage to the prototype (Specialized rims, Bullseye hubs, etc).

Ah I knew YOU'D disapprove. Seriously, its a disaster I knew. What can I do to fix it ? :wink:

Serious, you were a huge help with this. That front derailleur would have held it up for weeks I'm sure, it was awesome of you to go digging for me. And the Bullseyes... I dont even want to talk about it :twisted: They're still not right.

Thanks man. Hope to see you a this vintage show in Cospgs in Feb?

Whenever I can repay that favor, you just let me know. I have Spinergys wheels you'd love.

Very tidy indeed and really like the story about finding the tubes, persuading Chris Herting, doing the forks etc.

Look forward to an update with ride photos

Hi Mike,

That is a killer bike !

Special praise for:
- That a few tubes and an idea evolved into this. I do not recall so quickly having seen this before. At least not in this proportion.
- I like it comes with a site. The site is a good read as well. Really agree with the analysis on page 1.

Those two things do really raise the bar a huge extend. Doesn't mean nobody won't be able to jump over the bar again ...so with 360 days to go I will not state it will be BOTY. The challenge has to be left open for other people. Sure they will face a very tough contender, so restorers/builders out there do your utmost to beat this !

She's a real tart that one mate. I think you've got her sorted well. Bring it with you next month. Fine job on the site, as well. Did I mention that I was just a little bit jealous? :lol:
