    Its looking nice. Got the rear wheel to get built, and the hub to pick up. Bottom bracket to put in(not sure which size though so got to take it to LBS for them to mess around with chain line) Lost one of the bolts from the headset:sad: Its in the house somewhere i think, but i've looked and cant find it. Got the bottom one and the washer/spacer thingy for it. Anyone got one spare by any chance?
    Bar tap i have to choose, not sure which colour to go for. Rims are a shiny silver, water bottle holders are going to be shiny silver, brakes should hopefully be a shiny silver(you seeing the pattern;))
    Very excited now:biggrin:

    Undercoat and then steel. Or however it was spreyed, not sure.
    I had stripped all the old paint off and then was taken to be spreyed. I did get told what was going on it, but it goes in one ear out the other. Could find out if needed though.

    Errr ... and who made the steel. Or rather, who assembled it into a frame?

    Not a clue. It was already painted when i got it. All it had on it was Negre. I guess that was the persons business name who painted it. Its a 531 frame.
    Young Un, no job. Just a paper round and lots of saving. The SCR4 i bought after saving and the frame was free, and all the stuff i showed you in that picture were either free or cheap. Painting was done by a mate so it was done for just the materials and a crate of cider.
    Get a paper round, save up, do extra rounds and you can afford the stuff.
