And what the front mudguard looked like when I first got it.

Sweet-looking bike. Now I have an example to emulate! Did you paint just the fenders/mudguards, or the whole bike? The paint on mine is not too bad, except along the top tube where the extra shifter is mounted.

One puzzling thing about my bike is the mounted headlight with no dyno hub. Maybe the original owner can clear things up whenever I get around to emailing him.

Ordered some parts today, including the indicator pin and an axle nut. Hopefully the IGH is in decent condition.
