Superb job!
Every day when I get home and there's a notification that you've done something, it's the first thing I look at.
Your attention to detail and your engineering skills are something to be envied. Keep it up, I'm really looking forward to the result after waiting for so long.... nearly 20 months so far :D

I feel the same way, there's just something about this build that REALLY appeals to me. I think it's a combination of the high end parts, the meticulous craftsmanship, the style of bike assembled (hot-rod DD hub) and the care that you are putting into the aesthetics. 8)

Looks brilliant. I can attest to Luis painstaking attention to detail as I bought his old bike.
