Bruce, It may not be a cost effective start for someone who wants to recreate (they're only original once) the whole "Vintage Jack Taylor" visual feast. But it seems like a good deal for someone who just wants a very nice "Bicycle". The parts may not be correct but there's nothing wrong with any of them.
