Job done

The bike is fully assembled. The gears and brakes have been tuned and appear to be working fine. I’ve taken the bike out on two 20+ milers and I’m absolutely delighted with how it rides. Extremely light, comfortable and responsive. Joyful.

The bike is also very beautiful. I’m really pleased with how it’s turned out. It’s a classic manufacturer and a classic looking bike. I intend the keep the bike for a very long time and I expect it to date gracefully (hoping the rider does too).

Given that I’ve fully assembled the bike myself I will take great pleasure in keeping it serviced/maintained from home. I’ve already taken to cleaning it after every ride, but that can’t continue… can it?

Thanks for reading.

  1. Nice work, the site and the workmanship. Great idea to build a common racing bike. Would like to hear how it handles w/ higher speed.
