Very nice indeed. The only thing I would change, for aesthetics reasons would be a skinnier fork.

Great looking bike, lovely build too, this must be the lightest steel bike on the forum?

You could save maybe 5gms buy shortening the housing going into the rear deraillieur and you have to remove those dust caps!
