It looks fantastic and while it's not my place to comment on the Dura Ace, it is whatever you enjoy. The fact that it is so different from your other rides in just that respect makes it a great thing. Looks lovely.

Cheers Allen, Though I’m already planning a winter makeover :D

Plan is; full chrome front forks, new rear drop-outs (the old school screw in adjusters are broken off inside these) also chromed and increased rear spacing by 5mm. Then a baked enamel Champagne paint job at Bob Jackson’s.. that’s my Christmas present sorted :xmas-big-grin:
