Hi all, I just spotted this website today. This is one of my bikes, based on a Schwinn Fastback Comp frame, with other components of disparate provenance:

BTW thanks to Alex and all concerned for the very useful material on here; I think I'm going to find it (& likely also advice on the forum) rather helpful in tackling some of the practical aspects of a few bike projects which I'm working on.

Hello and welcome. I like the smooth flowing lines on the blue bike you have

Howdy. I went to Pimlico Grammar School for a bit, lived in Gardener's Square. #24 bus rules.
Nice bike with go fast gears in the back I see. Looks like a nice Cateye rear light, I can't see the front.
I see no branding, so you repainted the frame?
How about some black, or brown & white flecked bar tape to match the seat?
Very nice bike, keep it safe.

Hi guys & thanks for your remarks! Among my motivations for wanting to build bikes myself are aesthetic ones, so it's particularly rewarding when other people like the look of a bike I've put together.

The fork with the wavy shape and lines is one I picked up cheap at a bike jumble sale; it was made by a Belgian company called Jazz Cycletech. I had it resprayed along with the Schwinn frame.

The stem is a 35 degree (I think) riser stem produced by BBB. I like riser stems, although road bike & fixie purists distain them. For one reason, they allow one to use STI / Ergo shifters while having a comfy (for me) body position on the bike.

Yes, the number 24 bus is a great bus- after all, it goes to Hampstead Heath, one of my favourite places.
