Thanks I'm definitely pleased with it! It's going to be my daily steed so will see some action and take some abuse so won't look this that for long!

It's complete, looking good and riding good. Ready for work in the morning. UST took it out for a spin and all was well. Very pleased with it!

So many nice details there. Does the Altoids tin hide the batteries for the back lamp?

Superb job, it looks just as good as I thought it would built up and it's really good to see it out and being used but get it out of that puddle, all that shininess is going to look so wrong covered in dirt.

Thanks for the comments!
The altoids tin holds 4 AA batteries powering both the front and rear lights plus the handle bar lights with the wires routed under the bar tape.
all from 1 switch!
I've used old dynamo lamps, made up the wiring loom and fitted LED bulbs.
