Sadly on its maiden ride I managed to royally f*ck up the resulting faceplant cost me my front teeth & 15 stitches to my face, all of which has healed, the only remaining scars (other than on my upper lip) are the scrapes to the previously extremely good condition techlite levers and precisiion billet shifter pods !!!!

Any way, since I failed to get any pictures of it in its boxfresh state...here it is after the fact...most of the blood has been washed off but there is some just about visible here and there on the bike.

Once again, thanks to those of you that made this possible, and therefore indirectly cost me my teeth and boyish good looks! :P

'tis indeed a beauty. One of the few builds I've seen were multi colour anno works - normally it just screams 'lash up'.

What sort of vintage is the frame?

Thanks all.

The frame is a 93/4 vintage and I agree with you about the anno, I am not a huge fan, and indeed this was my first build since the much simpler black gold Pace build that I have done...and I actually really like it. ( I liked it more before it tried to kill me though!)
