seen it, just dont think that the owner of GC built it.... looks like a bike with some history behind it,

its looks very 70's endurance, very french tail...

Can't say it is my favourite colour (or favorite color as you might put it in America...) but way ahead of mine in that it is a working bike instead of a large pile of bits as mine still is. BUT - I am now lining things up to start work in earnest, and have a deadline of next year's Shetland Classic Motor Show in Lerwick in the first weekend of June 2012. Sounds a long way off but will soon be here I suppose.
I like the leading link forks but I was in contact with Tony Foale a while ago and they seemed unlikely to be made for a while. Might pester him again and see, but meanwhile I have Maxton about 3 miles up the road so they are favourites for forks. (Or even favorites I imagine).
Best part is I retire in 4 weeks time so should have loads of time and pots of money to do a superb build, once I have bought a new bathroom that the wife wants, a new car that my son wants, a new horse that my daughter wants......... OK - I'll see if I can sort the thing out for less than fifty pounds. I'll keep the forum updated once it gets under way anyway. Best wishes and safe riding to all.
Just watching Mad Max 2 for some bike design ideas.....
