British Racing Green huh? Just stay away from the Lucas electrical system, or your headlight will only work during daytime rides...:rofl:
Some Australian cars had Lucas electrical systems, it got so bad at one point we referred to it as "Lucas the lord of darkness"

Hey Dave there's too many shades of British racing green so bike will be one of them .
Here's a shot of my wheel set I had built some day I will lace up my own but this time thought it should be done by an expert.
Tire size is 26x2x1 3/4 rebuilt Sachs Torpedo 2 speed kickback and sealed high flange on the front I think the rims are vintage CCM my favorite style

Paint is on last coat of clear pictures are always the hardest part colour does not look right in 1st picture
second one is close black head tube and darts are hard to see.
My first attempt at a fancy paint job hopefully they will show up better when I shoot the shots of the finished bike
