Thanks guys. Mounts were already part of the fork lowers, I just re-used them.

I never wondered into this "specials" board and I wish I had sooner - I just read through years of this build in a couple hours. To see the naysayers and downright rudeness was very disheartening and I am glad you didn't take too much offence to it and continued on and still posted your progress as the biggest "F-U!" to them!

The level of crasftsmanship and dedication to no comprimise is awe-inspiring and I hope you build more for us to drool over!

The more I look at this bike the more I like it.  Which is saying a lot, as I liked it immensely the first time I looked at it.

Thanks for all the kind words guys... sorry it's been a while between updates but a nice European holiday slowed down progress (even more). But back now and getting onto some woodwork! The beginnings of a seat:

The book matching will be gorgeous.  What type of wood is that?

The dark timber is Tasmanian Blackwood (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acacia_melanoxylon), and the light one is Huon Pine (only found in SW Tasmania -  https://www.australianwoodwork.com.au/blogs/news/what-is-so-special-about-huon-pine - stunning timber, very carefully managed down here now).

Did you bend the wood yourself? What kind of process did you use you get the curvature?
