  • wow that's a nice choice of colour...is it 1950'ish? who did the paintwork...and how are you going to build it up...

    it's an early 50's frame, i got it matched pretty much to the original colours, although i had to lose thhe box lining. going to see if i can sort that out at a later date.

    as for the build, combination of old and new; mavic modue E 27" rims, newish hubs, brooks B17, fifties seatpost, nitto deep drop stem and track bars, campag pista chainset.

    oh aidy - i had my bob jackson stolen last night. sigh.

    i will do, at the end of the week when i've built it up. waiting for crankset to arrive, need a few other bits.

    looks great with the mavic 27" wheels. can't decide whether to go with the kronos or girder stem.
