Reynolds 653 has steel fork, Dura Ace 7700, DT Swiss Hugi hubs with DT R1.1 rims, weighs in at around 10kg so is no WW, but was my first "serious" bike 20 years ago.
Raleigh RC Ltd weighs 7.5 kg ready to ride with DA pedals, Zipp bottle cages and Garmin 705. Not really light, but a really solid bike for a 195cm 94kg rider.

Parlee Z5 build aiming for close to 6kg with SRAM Red, helped by BB30, Edge 1.38 rims (no longer in production) speedplay zero Ti pedals.
Frame should arrive in 2 weeks and then being built by Cycles Bespoke.
Starting with 3T Team bar stem and post, swapping Ti bolts and carbon seat cable from Raleigh, Selle Italia Carbonio seat. Probably change chain from SRAM Red to KMC 10 XL, all hardware will be Ti.
Comfort and reliability high on list, with lowest weight possible.
Parlee will be for hills rides and Cyclo events,
Will lighten Raleigh to about 6.9kg with new wheels for Masters races.
Raleigh is a rebranded Bottecchia 8avio raced by MTN / Energade team in South Africa in 2008.

Some really wicked Parlees and other bikes on WW sites.

Do you still own the Parlee? Im almost certain I have seen it in the workshop at Cycles Bespoke...
They are also my LBS, and I recently aquired some handbuilts from them.

How do you find the Jonesman?
Impressive looking stable you've got!

Yep I still have the Parlee, which I recently upgraded to DA 9000.. I will be keeping it for a long time.
I only got the Jonesman last Friday.
Chris did an amazing job. The idea was to build a steel bike with similar geometry to my Z5. He did the oversize headtube and tapered fork to stiffen up the front end on a big bike.
Even though it's about 2.3kg heavier than my Parlee it doesn't feel heavy, and the ride is buttery smooth.
Similar in feel to my Z5 but smoother. I still need to test it out in the hills.

Nice stable of bikes with quite a bit of variety! A few shots of those were taken in UWA?

Ah, very nice... And what made you stick with the Sram Red crankset and Praxis rings, rather than DA9000?

I regularly see some pretty cool Jonesman's in there. Never dared to ask about pricing though!

@Dirty32 - I stuck with the Red crank as its a BB30 frame and using an adaptor and DA9000 crank would add weight. (This is WW after all)
I might still add a DA9000 crank due to the ability to change between standard and compact or semi-compact rings without changing the crank.
The price was reasonable but Chris only builds a few frames a year and it takes a long time to get one built. Well worth the wait in my opinion.
@Kayrehn - photos taken at home, Trek pic was on South Perth foreshore and last Parlee one was at a cafe in Fremantle
Nice to see a few locals on here
