Nice work, white is the new...white? Did they forget to mask out the head tube?

Thanks for the comments guys, yeah they forgot the headtube and a couple of other places but nothing the dremmel didnt sort out! I cut down an old brake adapter one of the 160 to 180mm ones and took it to a local welder we use at work, I know its not a retro build anymore but the frame handles great just having no end of prolems bleeding the rear brake.
