    The European standards is the right hand controls the front brake. Motorcycles are also this way since the the left hand is the clutch foot brake for the rear. Some people like it this way, (especially motorcyclists) or the owner might be European.

    You're confusing European with British, I think.

    Chain looks fine to me, a little slack never hurt no one. Izzat a road ring, though? A little slack + road ring might hurt a little bit.

    Bar tape gap is massive! Setup is screaming for leather bar tape.

    Get a silver headset spacer.

    I like this quite a bit...HOT! I don't know if it's the photo angle but it seems like the bar could be rotated down a bit.

    Imagine if I had to start a new thread for every single bike that I have with pictures and all in outskairts of Sandiego. Might as well start three different threads for each as if they were all Rossettis. Now we are talking major clog up.

    not - wheels don't help, wrong cog, rotate the bars down, to many spacer (slam it!), loose all the stickers.

    Bar needs to be rotated forward AND levers are too high on bar.
