Frenzy of bike acquisitions continues unabated...

except that this time it is Donna's turn.
This Bob Jackson touring frame is brand new. Imported by Sheppards in the mid-80s, it languished in a Christchurch bikeshop until it appeared on Trademe a couple of weeks ago.
Everything that I needed to build it into a civilised road fixie, except cables and bar tape, was lying about in the shed.

This is very much a work in progress.
The Superbe Pro seatpost may yet be swapped for a Campag 2-bolt post to get a little more seat setback, the rims don't match, and the mudguards are clapped out from my previous misuse.
