June 26.13 – The “Don Player Special”

When I handed Ian’s bike over to him he affectionately called it the ‘Don Player Special’ and the name stuck. The frame is built from “over oversized” Reynolds 853 Pro Team tubing, with a custom machined bi-lam 44mm head tube and hand carved bi-lam seat cluster incorporating Ian’s initial, visible through the rear seat stays. There is also an internally routed rear brake cable.

We went with an ENVE 2.0 fork, Campag Chorus group set, Chris King Inset, full Thomson finishing kit and Busyman supplied the awesome custom bar tape and recovered the saddle to match with gold perforations and red stitching.

Then of course there’s the paint job, with the paint taking inspiration from Ayrton Senna’s John Player Special Lotus from the mid 80’s. Next to the Gulf Porsche, one of the most iconic paint jobs of all time! I love the JPS Lotus and was so excited when Ian said he wanted to use this as his inspiration and we’re both really pleased how it turned out!

Thanks to George Marshall for the photos. More in the Gallery.
