I bought the frame, a Viking Mileater from early 1950s in Reynolds 531, from fellow Forumenger in 2012. I had it Armortex powercoated (mint green) and built this up as fixed. I rode it a lot around London, but after moving to Edinburgh and having a kid this never gets ridden. It'd be good to give it a good home.

Hi - sorry about that! Pics work on my laptop but I also couldn't see them on the phone. Anyway- link to album is here which works on my phone at least:
