Much appreciated 😉 take it you are not a lover of the Spengles.
How's your spesh build going?

One of the two "final" missing pieces just arrived today, with the other due on Wednesday.

So it's nearly time to cable up and ride off into the sunset...

What I mean is: It's nearly time to start looking for parts for the next build!

As for the Spengles: Yeah, but that's because I'm simple minded and like simple things.

They've obviously very nice on the bike in question!
