If I do, this will be the " off the peg " frame I'll bring to them as an example of what I like.

Yeah, thats Kind of what I'd do. Some of the retrobikes I like, seem (to me) to be unobtainable, so why not take those Ideas to a frame builder?

I guess this Idea might horrify some.. :lol:

Surely not!

" I'm 6'6" and I'd like you to make me a 22", unpainted, V braked Kona with this tubing without it looking like I'm on a special needs bike please. "

Yeah, that'll work....one day.

Cheers gazz! Purists will be pleased to note that I've now replaced the Tan Spoon saddle with a black Rolls. A bit heavier but bugger it, looks nicer.
