So the Electron is finished!
Here's the link to a set of before after photos I've placed in Readers Road bikes;

and here is a taster shot, hope you enjoy! :D


Looks fantastic, nice job!

Oh and sorry for the late reply to your earlier question about my bike. No, I dont have a thread going about the build, I can send you a few pics though if you want to PM me. I'll even include a shot of the rear derailleur I destroyed 2 days ago when I threw my chain and it got sucked into the rear wheel bringing me to a very dramatic stop. :)

'Readers Road Bikes". Are the eyes blanked out with a black line?

Not quite, but I do try to protect my kids identities on open forums, although that’s a loosing battle with both of them now on instagram etc.

OK so we have now finally finished the 'Father & Son Claud Butler Restoration' and at last managed to get a family ride in on this brilliantly sunny day. Its been a lot more fun that I could have possibly hoped for, and now Jimmy is planning on his next build, something for Mum!
Here’s some photos from today and a first and last picture comparison.
Ps I’ve posted some details shots of the Majestic and spec in Readers rides; viewtopic.php?f=23&t=382997

Jimmy is already on it, picked this black '55 Ladies Sport on flea-bay, he making a mood board of photos but I think we've narrowed it down to Bob Jackson's dark green flamboyant with gold box work like this red one;

Glad the big day finally arrived! Bikes look great, and the weather sounds very cooperative, too. :)
