    Yup look's like another old barn find.

    The attention to detail makes my brain hurt. I wouldn't have believed ya painted rust unless I saw it myslef.
    loved every min of your build thread. every minute!

    that's true. it's fantastic
    obviously you're not the usual carbon & lycra london cyclist - do they give you odd comments or just ignore you? :lol:
