    Nice build. Looks like it's going to be a great ride. BTW, I find "old fogies" a bit offensive.

    Cool!

    Lot of peeps don't understand how the sweet vintage bikes are picked way more than the latest and the greatest to ride. Not only that, IMO, the vintage bikes got more on looks than the latest and the greatest too. Hope I don't start anything!

    Anyway, you on a roll!!

    Nice build. I like the dings. (Seriously, not being sarcastic). Not sure how you can ride with the bar in that position but to each his own. BTW "old fogies" don't build bikes; nor do they ride bikes. Don't be so self-deprecating, but if you must, keep me out of it.

    "The bicycle, in the hands of a novice, is as alert and acute as a spirit-level in the detecting of delicate and vanishing shades of difference in these matters. It notices a rise where your untrained eye would not observe that one existed; it notices any decline which water will run down." -Mark Twain, "Taming the Bicycle"
