Oh, that's lovely.

Some grips and a saddle, and you're away. Oh, and do something about the chicken. 8)

That's a clucking big barbag!

*doesn't fancy stowing his kit in there* :|

The bike cost all of about £15 off eBay - I spent more on a basket to go on the front. Grips and pedals should arrive from the Old Bicycle Company hopefully in time for the weekend, and my old Brooks will go on it. Technically a girl's bike, but hell, if it's ready I may ride it to the farmers market on Saturday (if it's dry - the mudguards need a little more work).

Last night I set to polishing the chromework and got the front end done. Need to do the chainring, rear wheel and rear brake tonight or tomorrow and it's all set.

And speaking of barbags, I've won one in a photo competition run by the Edinburgh Bike Shop. :claps:

Saddle would be a good idea.

Congrats on the winning the barbag thingy :claps:

I'm just thinking, though...

Edinburgh = hills.

Rod brakes + hills = not stopping, followed by hurty ouchy pain. :?

I was surprised to see a rod braked machine in a shop in Todmorden. That must have been even more alarming... :-s

I think we like you too much to let you actually ride that thing :shock:

Tis all back together now (and since the pic was taken the white original pattern grips have arrived). The paintwork needs some attention, but anything over a couple of yards away and it looks great! Going to try and get a longer seatpost to have a whirl of it to the farmers market on Saturday (the singlespeed is a bit too heft for Mel at the mo - it's a little lower I think than my fixed, so I should manage).
