Australian built Farleigh by Bob Farley, unknown steel, offered to me cheap in really rough condition with a couple of small dings and some rust etc. Looks pretty early (no serial), Davis Components crown/lugs/bb. Stripped to raw, bead blasted, decals added and finished in plenty of furniture wax. I needed a frame I can get dirty, drop, lock up, ride whatever conditions and not worry too much about ruining it. Parts too nice for a pubbie but they were all sourced cheap and dirty and cleaned up way nicer than expected. Excuse crappy pics, will get better ones later.
Farleigh round blades, DA-7400 headset.

Current Stage Info:
The brown saddle had worn quicker than I was hoping so a good excuse to upgrade to more comfortable saddle, tape and doubles.
Not massive on coloured tapes and saddles but I think with the raw I can get away with a splash of colour.
Patina coming along really nicely also.
