In terms of craftsmanship and attention to detail, this bike is Hazan territory.  Absolutely staggering, amazing work!

And your photography is top notch too - this bike and its build story would make a great book!

This bike is better than I have ever seen detailing craftsmanship in every discipline from woodwork, leather, metal. Unreal!

That seat looks so comfortable! My ass just got jealous. You just keep the amazing creativity coming. Every time I see new pictures I think "what a great idea!"

Thanks all, I really appreciate all the kind feedback. But this one especially got me a bit misty if I'm honest:

In terms of craftsmanship and attention to detail, this bike is Hazan territory.

Max Hazan is my all time inspiration, such stunningly beautiful bikes (and works of art.. good god those things make me go all weak at the knees). I'm certainly not even remotely in his league, but I must say I was pretty chuffed to even be mentioned in the same sentence. Thanks so much.

That seat looks so comfortable! My ass just got jealous.

Heh, I'm not exactly sure how comfortable it will be, part of the reason for so many attempts was because I really wanted that really solid feel that a lot of old Chesterfields have, almost punching-bag solid. It feels pretty comfy to sit on in the garage going "brooom, broom", but not sure how it'll hold up over a long ride.. hopefully find out soon enough! But if nothing else, it's freaking solid!
