Ok, that's nice. Is that an NJS crank?

The crank is NJS, the black chain ring is not NJS. As far as I know the black chainrings are not allowed according NJS.

This is one gorgeous triangle! Aside from the incredible detail work on the seatcluster and dropouts with the torch... that mirror like finish, oh my... it's the perfect combo of fades and cut lines, with the fade from the blue to the chrome on the seat tube just perfect imo and the cut lines on the stays and dorpout edges. Fades can often be botched by being either too abrupt or just tacky, but this is just so nice. I just love seeing finished work like this. It's a nice pic to wake up to on Christmas morning.

Thanks for sharing.

Wow very nice. Please protect that top tube or it will get dented

With track grip its probably not needed to protect the top tube as the soft grip will be the part hitting the top tube and not the bare handlebar or, in this case absent, the handlebar plugs

I have a top tube protector ready but not yet put onto the frame. I think you are right, the soft grips might protect a bit but for now I think I will use the protector just in case.
