Straight-on front view. I'll note here that I haven't $#@&ed! with the bars so far as wrapping is affected, as I'm sure I'd never be able to wrap as well as this again!

The pedals again, because they're so cool.

Brakes (note QR lever), bell, head logo, etc.
Here I must admit that, although I bought new fancy cables I was too lazy to install
(and a little scared to screw with the fine bar tape wrapping).
Surely those pokey-unwound cable ends are fit to be tied (or cable-ended), tho.
By the way, despite it's not a true head badge, this Longstaff head transfer is a good example of velo-grandeur.

Nice 'GL' engraved crown.
Also note Tricycle Association foil transfer between shifters.

Front view; note original owner's name, Terry Trickett, hand painted on TT - an option.
If/when I can find somebody with a steady hand and nice script maybe I'll add my name on the other side.
Also note dust on fork crown etc. - I'd polished the trike all up for this ride & shoot, but went for a few kms on a gravel path.

Of note here is the nice fillet brazed (aka bronze welded) frame work, the combined Sugino/Shimano crank arm QR (see description), and of course the pedals et al. again.

Patches, the other side. The top ones wind up being upside-down on this rack.
Note Blatz beer patch - which nicely matches the TA one on the other side in same colo(u)rs,
and the US Bicentennial patch balancing the Union Jack on the opposite pocket!
Although I wasn't part of the Revolution, I've always liked the logo.
That CTC patch needs to wear, fade, & get dirtier before it'll be readable!

Front hub - Campag something or other (the skewers which I haven't ID'd are great). Chromed fork ends.

I guess this might be a 'torso view', which sounds weird.

Brakes - the most common setup on English tricycles is this: one canti, one side (or centre) pull, to meet legal requirement of two brakes without the complication of rigging rear brakes.
Note the cool Dia-Compe 983 eccentric canti (so impressed I scouted a NOS pair for my new Stanforth Kibo).
And dust. And the slightly creepy and prophylactic Schwalbe clear presta valve cap...
And how close the room is (I had to file the forward end of the canto pads to permit clearance to the side pull shoes!) Nikon D800, Nikkor 105mm/f2.5 Ai-S

View of the rear structure, freewheels, axle area, mech, & rack. Little bits of oil splash
(I'd cleaned and oiled the chain & axles/freewheel assembly before the ride).

Right rear hub - note the fancy (1990s NOS) Specialized crank bolt cap.
The bolt that holds the wheel on is also a crankset bolt, so a modern hex with a
plastic surround one night be simpler, more practical, even decent-looking,
but this at least for now seems fancier & shinier!
