I love the hand finished patina this bike has.  By that I don't mean scrappy or second rate, but rather that the finish on everything is spot on and has that lovely warm finish that can only be achieved with love.  A production bike would look equally pristine, but would somehow look too sharp, too industrial.  This thing looks luvverly, and I can't wait to see it finished.
If it ain't broke, then I haven't been hitting it hard enough.

Thanks very much.. !! Its slow progress, I could probably finish it in a day with some time off work.. but it would be rushed.

I have just gone ahead with the custom seat .. the original frame has been cut and welded to simply be a bit shorter than original and I hope my design comes out in what they produce. Being done this week!

New throttle cable arrived today so I can get that fitted along with the new horn. Tonights job is to cut down the rear indicator stalks so we can fit those and sort the rear mudguard.

I agree.  This bike has a great "look and feel" to it.
