The work looks good so far - better than Roberts would do now days I'm sure.

Ahh solid grey - very nice indeed!

Well, without going into details I'll just say I managed to get my money back - after legal wranglings began regarding a DB frame I ordered last year. That's my experience, you can call it what you like - even 'Poppycock'. I've still got the photo's but I gave my word not to publish them as part of the deal in getting my money back.

They made great frames back in the day, and I'm sure they still do make some great frames just not the one they made for me.

Thanks for the offer Pete, but I already have some.

The finish on the forks is not as smooth as the original RC30 fork legs, I may still polish them later. Wouldn't be complete without the Union Jack :)

Drivetrain taking shape

cheers, Giel
