Stainless Lugged City Bike

Howdy. So, this bike has nearly been done for some time now. I had previously put pics of the lug work and really cool vintage components it will get, not mention the wooden rims. The components are all Campy Nuovo Record, but are French spec, which are now obsolete and as a result the build has taken a bit longer as we had to make decisions on whether to use the parts or not, and if we did then trying to find or make materials and tools. In the end we chose to use all the parts, which made things a bit more difficult, but at least keeps the integrity of using the original gruppo, though that probably only matter to the customer and myself.

There are still a few small things to do to the frame. It is getting a chain slap guard/spare spoke holder, but I am waiting on getting spare nipples as they are different for the wooden rims. I still need to cut the threads on the steer tube, as the French thread pattern is different then current standard so had to machine a steer tube instead of using a normal one. And it will be getting stainless front and rear racks, which hopefully the tubing will arrive soon. The lugs will stay brushed, but will still get a bit more clean up before paint. Anyways, I really wanted to get some pics up just now. Hope you enjoy. I think it came out quite nicely.
