    The lines are very nice, but dang the parts are hard to find...like the Cotter Pins for the Crank Arms. Would it be worth it to keep on building the bike up....So far it's almost done. Oh the bike is an old Marfield Admiral.

    that bicycle requires a brooks saddle

    and fenders.

    i would actually go with riser bars, the kind that turn back towards you so the grips are parallel with the top tube, and dare i say it a basket too.

    kind of oxbridge quad-rocket stylee, to be ridden while smoking a pipe

    As far as cranks go you can dig through your LBS' junk bin for a set of square taper cranks and just replace the cottered spindle in the bb with a square taper spindle.

    Great...I have to polish the basket that came with the bike...but something tells me that the saddle that came with it is not original since it says made in Japan. Oh and it the saddle is made out of Vinly material.

    You can get cotter pins, of varying sizes, through biketoolsetc.com . Good god, the brits liked slack angles... look at that seat tube... definitely needs a brooks, I'll second the fenders. Saddlebag/carradice might be nicer than the basket, tho.
