Heres the next one to get finished now the PACE is out of the way. I'm waiting for postie to bring the last few parts today and will update as its bolted together.
This was Defiants old frameset- resprayed in 1970's Ferrari Salsa Verde Mica which is very similar to Ford Highland Green as seen on McQueens Mustang in Bullit.

DHL have just arrived with wheels and cranks (cheers Kingroon) so i had better crack on with the build!

Heres a few picks from readers kit for those who haven't seen it yet....
