Hi all, here's my new mode of transportation!

She's a beaut, an old Raliegh Merlin 5 speed
Image

Plans are not for much as I'm going straight into full time masters study, no time for much!
But if I get the chance:
Drop bars
red oxide paint
white seat, wheels and grips
and a wooden crate on the back...

Ideas, critiques, death threats welcomed!

Haha, yep, probably doing that, the paint is really nice...

New tires and some drop bars on order, removed the front brake today and cleaned all the greasy shit off it, so much better!
Need a beer crate for the back...

motivation...

Yep, nothing will beat that little van :D (until I get another car, then it's game on...)

A quick update: Front brake gone, black bar tape on, bar and stem lowered, front and rear lights installed, front fender coming off tomorrow (probably not the best idea in this weather...) new tyres sooner or later...

Still undecided on the paint, keep the brown and polish everything, or go red oxide/another colour and some sparkly touches?

Bobbing the fenders as soon as I get my hands on some tin snips...

Here's how she stands at the mo:

Got a little excited with the gold glitter spray and painted the frame, also stuck some Lego stickers on the front, sealed with PVA but they aren't liking the wet weather...

All you need now is a wicker basket and a giant leather hand bag in it XD

Cheers guys :) Not getting too much use this week with all this snow!


Next up will probably be a set of saddle bags/ ikea hacked specials :), though a wicker basket sounds interesting....
