This is a Litespeed Titanium, made in USA. In original condition! Very light and responsive. Uses this for long rides.

Here is my bike made by Kevin Sayles in 2012.  Kevin is the main frame builder at Woodrup Cycles in Leeds UK. I provided the Hobbs of Barbican Superbe lugs from the 40s, and the vintage 531 tubing, and the Compass Bicycles fork crown, and Campag dropouts. Kevin provided the Reynolds old style narrow fork blades, and many hours of his expertise, which was learned from 42 years of frame building, his entire working life. Chrome and paint were done by Argos, of Bristol. Parts are mostly 80s Campagnolo, with Cinelli bar and stem, Suntour Bar-cons, Brooks saddle, Bluemels guards, Rigida 13-19 rims. A nice light fast sports tourer with low enough gears to get around in our hills.  Of special note are my floating sprocket wheels.  24 spoke hubs with 36 spoke rims, all tied together with 12 spokes to a floating sprocket in the middle.  Gives the wheel a lively and smooth 24 spoke ride while being 36-spoke strong.  I think this bicycle is the definition of modern classic.  Here is a full set of pics of this bike including construction
