Here’s an update from Hugh on an OTS he submitted sometime last year. This is his Hughbilitated Sportex 12. Hugh, you know I’m your biggest fan, but I have one gripe with this beauty. Why on earth did you opt for the black seat post? Please tell me it was the only thing available in the correct diameter! Nevertheless, beautiful work and we’ve come to expect nothing less.
I thought I would send you an update on the Sportex 12. I finished it a few months ago. But I was not pleased with the brake-levers and cork. So here it is with some “refurbished” drilled levers with new hoods. And also some natural-look cork tape. I also added a set of old-style traps. I wanted to build a bike to replace my beloved Fuji Gran-Tourer S.E. It`s to cold to test ride, So I`m not sure if I succeeded or not.
Cheers,Hugh from Highland
