Here comes my final missive on this thing, and I fully accept any accusations of being a dilettante with O/C issues.
Not having access to (nor the skills to derive) the original flickr stream, I did not know that the fenders were by VO, though in my defence I just said that the hardware looks like Honjo's and so it should since that is who VO was copying in the first place. Secondly, Somerville says that the fenders are "smooth" polish by VO, with no reference to stainless. In VO's catalogue, none of their stainless sets are called "smooth" and in fact are prefaced by the word 'stainless'. I contend that they are aluminum.
One love,
OJAW

Matching handlebar tape too with the pebble dash paint finish.

The only things I would change is the angle of the saddle and possibly the pedals which do not look to be contemporaneous with the bike. I say 'possibly', because I can not quite tell what they are, but they do look to be about 10 years newer than the rest of the build.

Otherwise a very nice build which is a credit to the owner, using Raleigh frame technology which is frequently overlooked in favour of the gems that were produced by the SBDU at Ilkeston.
