Not your typical build... Inspired by the Street Rods & the German Look.
LOVE IT OR HATE IT!!!

My version of a modern day classic.

Very well done. A friend still has a Masterlight in his stable and rides it pretty regularly as well as his C-40. Too bad the frame won't take down tube shifters.

Nice, I like that a LOT!

Whats the riding / racing scene like over in Jeddah? I live in Dubai but travel to KSA a couple of times a month, usually Riyadh and Dammam.

if breaking the rules leads to this, please go on breaking the rules...superb

the only point of critique i have is the position of the brake levers (a little bit too low)

Definetely loving it!
If i had to make a remark, it would only be on the saddle. I am not sure what would look best, but you can improve there, maybe using some more colour
All in all you ve got a greta result there! Enjoy!

The build ( group, seatpost and wheels ) look good on that frame, they match the silver, black and red colors on the frame.

The Saddle, Stem and Handlebars on the other hand don't look so good.

Off course that is just personal preference, those are your contact points, so if you are happy with them that's what matters.

But aesthetically they look too big for the frame.

I would try a more slender saddle, a horizontal thinner stem, the handlebars can be better if the ergos are positioned a bit higher, so the tips align with the drops line.
I would go with 26mm handlebars though.

Thanks lone wheeler!
There's some small groups riding on weekends... still dangerous.
Last time they have a proper race was a few years ago.

Ride safe in Saudi if ever you ride there!

I think i'll be leaving the bike at home on trips into KSA. Thankfully we have been a little spoilt over the last two years with new circuits being built just for cyclists. Boring but at least they are safe.

Thanks SalsaLover!

The point of this build was to "break the rules & be different from the rest" so that it will not look like just someone else's bike.
I personally think it came out good & joined a local bike show(not the most prestigious one in the world) yesterday & won best it its class.
