** once again, I can't post more than one pic at a time! I was able to for the BJ pics, but for some reason the Primato pics only one at a time.
Very nice, not that I have much different offerings to add if any. I would think the BJ would be perfect for Sunday though, you gotta have some Campy brakes around that could go on it.

hey @Kilroy1988 , thanks for the mention. I did finish this up awhile ago. I thought I posted pics of it in another thread, but not sure now. Anyhow, here are a couple pics of the finished bike.

I haven’t been riding at all the last three years and so I’ve been absent on all the bike forums. I’m trying to get back in the saddle this summer, but I have a lot of competing priorities so still haven’t ridden much.

Here are a few pics of the completed BJ.

Hey! It's good to see it all built up, indeed. I think it turned out great. Definitely a "classic light touring" rig in every sense! Thanks for sharing, and I hope you get some time in the saddle soon.

thanks Greg, and Milo!!

TBH, I’ve probably ridden my BobJack more than most of my bikes as I still take it to run errands. Also, most times I have to go to Kaiser Permanente, I take the bike. Same for my dental appointments, and my semi-annual FAA medical appointment. It’s nice to b able to “cruise” on a bike like this.
