Well, it's starting to look more like a bike now!

Trial fitting the wheels with the Compass, Rat Trap Pass tyres to the frame and forks I built @thebicycleacademy

It's the first time I've seen the frame and forks together with wheels and looking bike like! 
I still need to clean all the flux from the frame and tickle a couple of patches with a file before painting but all the fillet brazing is going to be otherwise left as is, from the torch.

I can't wait to get her painted and built up in the new year, though I still need to fabricate the racks once I buy my own torch set.
