1950's Repco rebuild

Hi guys,

I thought I'd post this in here as it has been getting some mixed reactions and I'm interested in opinions. I quite enjoy building these sort of bikes and after doing a 30+km ride on this last weekend (Ringwood - Melbourne) I enjoyed it so much I've decided to sell my 1940's Magneet roadbike and keep this as my regular roadbike.

Photo's don't do the colours justice:

NIce one. Looks like it may have been made by Bates (of Coburg).

Good to see it up and running.

I've changed to a smaller seat since building it which is more comfortable and looks a lot better, and done 2 30km rides along Eastlink into Melbourne. Need to gear it down a tiny bit to make uphill more pleasant but overall I'm very happy with how the old girl rides.
