    The links now work because the full code is there. I left off the 'l' on HTML.

    I think that the Revelation only came in 3 colours. Flamboyant blue and flamboyant bugundy as well as a green which is so dark it almost looks black this is not in the catalogue.

    Too narrow, too modern looking, and if we need another strike against them, they're in America. They'd be ideal for a hot-rod Revelation, but not for what I want. I want some ordinary square section alloy rims, I think. I'm not going to try to replicate any of the original colours I don't think, just go with a scheme that "feels" right.

    Have you seen a hot rod revelation?
    Quite like the idea of a fixed/free stripped down Revelation but the ride may be too harsh on narrow rims. The Comet tyre appeals and would sit well on the economy rim which looks plain enough to me.
    I know what you mean about colours this is an opportunity to get something unique and fitting.
    Where will you get your rims?

    Hey Sammyboy, you got yourself a proper find there!
    I just got my first RE recently too (a wartime Sports Lightweight, nothing like yours!) and checked Hadlands Revelation article in the process of researching it..

    Colourwise I'd go for dark, BRG maybe?
    Lights, I'd keep the dyno-hub for originality and have clip on LEDs for temporary needs.
    Rechargeable battery packs can give you cheap usage and plenty of light.
    I got a 8/10 watt one (I think, can't find it just now!) and even with my poor eyesight I can see for miles!

    Smashing bike though, and different!
    I never wanted to be one of the sheep.

    For extra light, I've got a set of Dinottes, I just like the idea of lots of light on demand without remembering anything.

    Just in case you hadn't already seen it - some great background on Tony Hadland's site, along with some nice hi-res blueprints of the bike (Should anyone ever fancy building a replica... in Ti say )
