Looking a million dollars :). Might think about reversing the rear mudguard mount to hide it under the brake bridge :)

Always intended to do that when they were on the Mercian!

Managed a 10 mile or so test ride today, couple of little adjustments to make as is normal for a new build. Low speed handling was interesting with the fork rake but once up to speed it felt fine. Swapped out the stronglight headset for a TDC yesterday as I couldn't get the needle bearing one to run smooth.

Great looking bike. I picked up what I believe to be a 1962 Franco Suisse recently at a Garage Sale.
