Officially done =D
Bought the frame off ebay from a bloke in Tassie, he said it was a Mcbain. Closer inspection of the detailed lugs, drilled and slotted bottom bracket, drilled and campy stamped drop outs and campy tips, i was inclined to believe him. There were no serial numbers for me to confirm, but im pretty satisfied. Toptube had a reynolds stamp on it, frame and fork come in at 2.3kgs. Found a straight blade fork from italy, raw, but a good price, nice details, and some space for me to run 25c.
Was able to utilise the services of a local legend, ex-racer turned frame builder Milton Jones to help cut and thread my forks, nice fellow, chatted with him for ages, showed me photos, certiciates of his master builder status etc. Was tempted to get a frame built by him! When i got my forks back he just had his 80th, good bloke, need to visit him again.
Paint was done in house, well technically in-backyard =D . Frame was completely stripped back, primer, wetsand, base, wetsand, and clear. A good week minimum between each stage, longer depending on weather. For a home job, im pretty happy. Paint has a nice metallic shimmer in the sun, nice and smooth. All paint were rattle cans from bunnings, primer, base and clear. Squirts Metalic Charcoal, $7 a can. Lugs filled with Tamiya model paint.
