I'm not planning to lacquer the frame if that's what you mean ?

Think we might be talking at cross purposes here - AntFox above needs a seat post - I just mentioned up there ^^ that the cromoly Tioga one that came off my bike has come back from stripping & being cromo will need some protection once it's polished up. Lacquering or black passivating maybe.

Polish time ! Get some mothers polish from the bay , it was recommended by all my vw mates and its amaizing , you use the free micro fibre cloth and it really works. If the frames needs a slight bit of work before then try some 2000 wet and dry .

I may have the frame with me on Saturday when I go to work so ill have to let you know.

The 27.0 rock shox post drops in a treat and the 27.2 is a no go at all unless you force it in which I don't want to do as it needs to be moved up and down. As we have a wheelie challenge planned on cannock chase when a new bridge opens :)

Ant


VW mates... Rugeley... Julian Rider ? I mess with old VWs too.

Saturday I'm not going to be about unfortunately - let me know if you're up this way another time and I'm sure we can work summat out.
