Sun Manxman project

The Sun Manxman is slowly progressing. A few finishing touches and it will be ready for the road. (Previous update on the Red Devil Motors blog).

Nearly there.... It took a while to find a suitable double
cottered chainset.

A new old stock Brooks B17 has been found.

Love the engraving on the GB bars.
Campag bar end levers took a while to find at a reasonable
price. These ones came over from the US. Brooks bar tape
is quite pricey but really finishes off a build nicely.

New Campag downtube cable stops aren't period correct but
are unobtrusive. A bit disappointed to find out when they
arrived that they are plastic.
