    I have but it's parted up. Want it? Send me a pm. Id sell the parts too but they're quite rare now in that condition. The frame has a few minor dents which I didn't bother fill and it was a little rusty but it was inspected and resprayed at Bob Jackson, to stabilise it as much as anything else.

    I don't think I should comment because it's not mine. The information is all in the build thread - follow the link in the first post

    Lost the plot - bought a Raleigh 20

    I used Sun CR18s on mine - SJS sells them in a choice of drillings. There's not much choice in tyres though.

    Bottom bracket spanner

    Re: The tube is just to help keep bits of crud / rust out of the bearings. Not strictly necessary, no

    Bottom bracket spanner

    Re: I have the HCW 11. It's very thin, so if that's seized I think you'd have a problem. If it's not seized a normal pin spanner might work but I'd try a drift and a few sharp taps first

    SUCCESS! Caustic Soda to remove seat-post-my experience

    Great write-up Ray - especially the safety notes (my neighbour once poured CS down a sink full of hot water and ended up in A&E). It's a tough job indeed freeing a seatpost, nice one ;-)

    Re: Yes, thanks for the comment, I improved the spec over the years. eBay completed sales don't always help a great deal for things like this that a reasonably rare. The bike is promised to someone now so I'll hold it for a couple of weeks.
