Very nice indeed! Look forward to seeing the completed build :D

Takes me right back to my early '90s MBUK reading days....

Quick update time.... Here's my Clockwork in Big Dirty Weekender form. I wont do a full build list yet as I want to use it next weekend so had to chuck a few parts at it to get it ready. Have a few more parts in mind before it's in peak form. The pictures don't do the neon yellow parts justice as they glow up close!

Saying that, I've got some lovely wheels incoming that have ano blue hope content and dark rims so am already thinking of a different direction for my Clockwork that involves no neon with black seat post and stem. :lol: :roll:

Thanks chaps. I know what you mean about the bars and magi's Owen, I like 'em too but I need something to stick my new wheels on so might try this one a little more understated. I had the magi's on my old orange/white Clockwork and really liked the look so I might get another orange/white Orange and stick 'em on that. :wink:

Had a 10 mile blast on it the other night and love the ride, it feels just right. Think I prefer it to my Vit T! :oops: 8)

'tis a thing of unrivalled beauty... I'm back riding the bike to work 2 days a week now, and the odd spin at the weekend - so money saved on train fare will go towards the slow resurrection of this sleeping beauty... WTS... JP ;)
