Not a big fan of Ano on Ti bikes...always think they look better in a more stealthy mode.

Still, rare bike....your lucky owning it :D

Seeing your Sweet Wings with a hint of purple has convinced me to go the same route with mine on Project Unicorn.

Still impresses me... :shock: :shock:

Somebody wrote about the lacing of the wheels. I used to ride on 28h Tune hubs, with the same patern as yours and never had a problem. I'm not a light person (85kg) and it is OK for years. Though my riding style is light-footed, maybe that's the secret.. .Oh SH#T, now you know one of the secrets :oops:
I don't think it would be a problem riding it, but can imagine that you're afraid of 'hurting' the hubs...

..and those cranks... beautiful...awsome... My English is lacking massively in words to come up... :?

Keep up the good work and show us the end result when you're satisfied. Though, a nice pic of the pogress would be nice also ofcourse.

Oh..yeah, by the way. It took me also several years to collect the parts for my retro too. I think that's at least half of the fun of building a nice bike..

love the frame and sweet wings. Lots of ano on a titanium frame is a temptation from which one should flee....as difficult as it may be :wink:

cool bike 8)

Oh yes, a lot of time it takes. I wanted to enter BOTM with my fat, but already I know it won't happen. Still no saddle and pedals :(


ps. I've just seen your beauty :D
It's lovely. I always wanted to go white/green, I even own a lot of green stuff (bolts, hangers etc. etc)
Paul in green mmmm delicious
