Full on Retro

If'n you're going for the full on retro look might I suggest old fashion clips and straps. Those Speedplays look way out of place.

BTW, love the bike.

Not quite perfect. Look at the brake cable housing. Don't accept the bicycle until this is fixed.

That looks fantastic.........

In a post a few weeks ago I mentioned that I wasn't overly keen on RS's current red/white and blue/white paint jobs - just don't suit modern components (just my taste). I have to say I really love it with that bar tape and those retro components - great job.

I'd have gone yellow cable outers and yellow saddle!!! No taste me:thumbsup:

Now you need to get some nice wool shorts and a jersey and you're off;

How long did you wait for it?
Ebay score JP alerted me to. Had it for a couple months now. No way could I afford/wait for a new one.
