Custom built Donki's Nob: seat tube from a 16" model. Top tube from the 18" version. Dave also made the stem.

Dave brazed mounts for Hope mechanical calipers on it too. I bought a pair for the bike but they didn't fit and I had to use the ones I bought in 1992 (from the second ever batch). The front hub uses the even rarer screw on spider. Dave also brazed a mount onto some Project 2s and tidily removed the canti bosses.

It's just had a respray by Bob Jackson as Dave isn't set up in his new frameshop yet. Dave sold me two lots of transfers, in case I have another respray in ten years.

Apart from the grips and tyres all parts are completely period.

And before anyone says the saddle isn't as nose down to sit on as it looks.
