Back in the early 90's one of the bikes I raced as a juvenile / junior was a Clockwork... last year I managed to get my hands on one via this site.
Admittedly it needed a bit of work putting in, but all the components were either original from that era or NOS...
Obviously it needed a respray, I did post a few threads asking for peoples recommendations a while back. Also some original tange steel forks (thanks Makster!)
Big thanks to tiboltrider for the help stripping it down to just the frame.
Sinnerman (Cheers Carl!) pointed me in the direction of Graphicshack in Bristol for the respray and, well, ... judge for yourselves!

All set to start building it up and will be ready to roll for the Bristol retroride in September. :D

Those Graphicshack chaps really do know how to re-paint a Clockwork. I'd love to get them to do me one. If it's not a rude question, how much does it cost?

Watching this one with interest. 8)
