Here's what I wanted to emulate, and pretty much all I gave Gil to work from:

Pete, that's fantastic!

I was influenced by the Sycip brothers work when I gave the Fuquay a make over.....nowhere near being as good looking as your White Spider is going to be!

The parts are going on thick and fast but I won't be showing it off fully 'til the proper forks are on it as the RC35s just look wrong.

The bullseyes are now off and NOS cooks are on and look soooo much better, Caradice delivered the canvas and leather bar bag today, dug out the campag superleggari pedals, Omas BB is on, helicopter tape is everywhere on the underside, gold metallic cable outer is cut and in place as is the gold kmc chain and gold classic skewers on hope wheels. Bolted on the mavic mechs and shifters + the pauls cantis with scott mathauser pads, mavic headset is in place as is the use post and brooks swift saddle, salsa stem and nitto bars.


I'll post a few teasers shortly......
