Thought I'd put some pics up of my steel frame which I have just had sprayed and tidyed up. Not brilliant pics but you can see a bit of the metallic which looks really nice in the sunlight.

    Looking pretty mate.

    I wish mine was that close to being finished!

    cheers. Just gear cables to do now. Also have another pair of wheels(campag) I will put on but still waiting for the hubs. Then it will be a total Campagnolo build! (except for bars, pedals and stem...)

    What bars are those? I'm just starting to build up a steel bike, and I can't find any non-anodised aluminium bars anywhere.

    Looks like a very pretty bike there - nice one!

    Get on hubjub or velosolo mate.

    They are 3ttt 'competizione' tdf bars. 3ttt did a few bars in the gun-metal like these I think. You can find plenty of bars on ebay normally. As well as here, Londonfixed gear always has lots of people selling vintage stuff.
