    Fine lugwork - pity the yellow paint was extended onto the edges of the lugs though. :thumbsdown:

    My latest acquisition, a mid 1970's Dave Lloyd, although I suspect not made by the man himself.

    Still struggling to get the seat post out. Things are about to get brutal.

    After that I think I want to build it up with age related bits as a 5 or 10 speed daily 'fun ride'.

    I may do a dummy run before deciding on paint, but it can't really stay as it is, as it really is a little too rustic at present.

    Sorry was having probs with attachments so I deleted original post and posted again.

    I somehow missed this thread, wowsers some real beauties here. @Spokesmann I've swooned over a few of your Sun's from the 'your cycle in front of wall pics' thread, you seem to have an amazing collection of shiny bikes. Have you got pics of your full collection posted somewhere here on Cyclechat for us to drool over?

    Here's my collection of clusters. By posting this I realise I should clean my bikes more!

    And now a contender for the messiest rear end ever award, my beater bike, my 2008 Genesis Flyer which is the only bike I dare leave locked up outside in London. As such I make it as unappealing as possible, my key strategy for this is to never wash it, ever. As it enters it 9th year of use I think the mud has now set like concrete and is adding extra rigidity to the frame!
