Indeed I shall.

I must say, I’m rather pleased with myself, it was going to be a plain Gold 80’s paint job, but then I thought what the hell, head tube and lug lining in white might be a nice nod to earlier Clauds

It's more of a glut than a shortage. I wouldn't be surprised to be wished a Happy Christma's. :facepalm:

Colstar looks great. So do Jackson still have Campag dropouts?

Re:

Ah.. that's very prescient of you. I cleaned so much corrosion off one of the dropouts on my Holdsworth Special that the drive and non-drive-side slots are no longer parallel. Now I'm torn between making the good side as bad as the bad side or leaving well alone.

Did you have to sacrifice any chrome to get the crown race on?

My comment was a general observation of trends in apostrophe abuse, rather than being directed at you personally.. :)
