    Got sick so had to take a week off but I'm back in the game and hoping to get this finished (ready for paint) before going home for Christmas.

    I've decided on parts and pretty much everything is already here or on the way.

    So long as the headtube they’re being brazed into is well faced and reamed so that the cups aren’t under tension there should be minimal distortion from heat, so in this case no

    Gotta strike while to motivation is hot!

    Paint...well I want it to blend in when locked up but still bring a smile to my face...if the painter does good with my track bike I think that’s the brief I’ll give him.

    He just did a deep metallic blue frame with oil spill effect logos which was lovely. Like that but black would definitely fit the bill above for me.

    Looks amazing, super practical and comfortable! I’m just curious about the spacing and chainline...track standard? Actually if you have a geo chart I’d love to see it...

    Yo @Rodolfo thanks for the input. Bikes sounds rad too, let’s see it!

    Have you been stopped before or since? I’ve been here about 18months now and never been stopped so I’m leaning towards option 2. I reckon I’ve got the ways and means to get a rear brake on there given 2 weeks if need be.
