For the ones I've posted here before:
I'm also fond of the Worksman I completed a year or 2 ago. It's "modern" in that it has a 7 speed IGH & index shifting. But mostly I'm just showing it off as a restoration/cool old bike.

Also really like my 1972 & 1974 Ultegra 6800, carbon forked Schwinn Varsities. Both of which I've shown here before.

I recently "down graded" a Raleigh R600 to downtube shifters. Then matched some period correct RX100 brake levers to the RX100 calipers I found at the co-op. Then I managed to piece together a matching Ultegra Hollowtech triple crankset & derailleurs from bits I've been hoarding for about 3 years. Maybe I'll leave the 9 speed cassette...I dunno. With the polished Weinmann 28 spoke deep dish wheel set, it looks pretty sharp. All 22 pounds of it. I still need a sunny day to get some pictures.
I'm not usually a fan of modern 4 spoke cranks, usually seen in black. Maybe its the lighting or the green frame paint, but yours is really striking. Did you strip and polish a black crank? I'm not a fender and rack guy either, but it is a great looking bike!
