Looks great Pete, as mentioned to you before.

Well done!

Being picky, the Bullseyes and bar ends are a bit too much for me, but still a corker!

Strange to see a stem looking obviously 'bigger' than the frame tubes. I know this is normal with aluminum stems / steel frames, but somehow when they're painted to match they look wierd!

A polished A-Tac wouldn't seem so 'in-yer-face' somehow, but at the same time wouldn't be half as cool...!

Not original and not quite perfect as they are a little too thin on the end that sits in the frame, but you can get then from Venhill.co.uk who have a big old stock of ferrules in all sizes:
