:shock: That is AWESOME! Great job - you definitely captured the essence of the originals.
That is perfect! Everything is really well done. Could you give us a component list of what you put together for this bike?
P.S. the more I look at this bike the more details I notice, like the copper colored handlebar grip ends matching the Brooks Special copper rivets on the saddle. Tire logos lined up with the valve stems, etc, etc.
Thanks John! Here's a link to the build specs:

Since those pictures were taken I've changed the pedals to copper plate and added a leather top tube protector. I'll post a new pic ASAP.
WOW! nailed it four sure!! :mrgreen:
Welcome to the site !
I sent you a PM hope you can come out and ride that COOL bike with us!
Chicago March ride...... viewtopic.php?f=5&t=36153&start=30
The same as Skipton wrote! Wow bring that for the ride.
the Shore Taxi- as usual a work in progress...
Well this is a Pashley Guv'nor but i thought i post it anyway..
It gets a minimum of love and gets ridden a lot but does'nt seeem to mind..
That would be my Alpine Racer I guess.
This is what I started with:
It's an Austrian Steyr:
This is what it looks like now:
Three speed Fichtel & Sachs with coaster brake:
Pre-war B.S.A. shifter:
that's lovely, but if the trigger don't match the hub (in terms of cable pull if not make) then you'll risk putting all your torque onto a fraction of the width of the teeth of the cogs internally..
maybe you know this and have reassured yourself already?
No, I haven't. But I don't ride it very hard, so there is not much torque to speak of.
OMG! I used to have a steyr like that. It was one of my favorite bikes. I'm still sad that i go rid of it.
Overrated overpriced old fashioned workingmans bike thread here....
Brit type loving your pics...I've made a wee blog at http://justmybike.blogspot.com/ showing the jouney from

I've already posted my Diamant racer, but I wanted to update it al little bit.
First a picture of the bike some two or three weeks ago:
But because of exessive riding the wheelset needs some love.
For my luck the first wheelset for my Indian boardtracker project is finished. So I tested it on this bike:
Here are a couple of mine, shot in the alley. The sign is posted as a joke, I found it in my old shed. Who would have made such a sign? I like to post the picture with the caption "Does your alley have adequate signage?"
I'm hoping the style fits in with this thread enough to be of interest.......
Since yesterday I have what may arguably be the ultimate Pashley Guv'nor style bike:
Nah, mine is the ultimate Pashley style bike http://www.guvnorownersclub.com/founders-notes/guvnor/one-plus-four/.
