Extreme (bike) Makeover




I've been anticipating this for a while, but it's finally done! Well, almost. I still need to shellac my grips, but here she is in all her glory!

This is now definitely a bike that illicits a few comments from the uninitiated and full on drools for bike peeps.

Basically I stripped all of the components (including wheels) off the frame and started over with new-to-me vintage ones. Here's what she looked like before:

Definitely an improvement, don't you think? I've installed theft-proof skewers to prevent the wheels being stolen and I have a cable which connects to my seat/saddle to stop that going astray too!
