Just about ready to go on the 656 now. Started out looking rather '2nd hand' but now with polished arms, fresh anodising and a set of lighweight 'roadie' rings, looking rather bling! Don't think I'll fit a granny as I never use it on my other bikes, and this bike is destined to be a sunny day 'beer garden to beer garden' cruiser. :D

Cheers folks. It HAD to be purple for this bike. I'm building an approximation of my favorite bike from my 20's, and purple was THE colour back then :D
