Its still going s l o w... but now I'm happier with the M1 fork - - the original fork crown had a removable steerer held in by allen bolts and as I have 28 stitches from a snapped steerer I looked for a later crown and ended up with a press fitted one and then had a right faff with the bottom chris king race versus the crown race in situ. now all osrted and I have 3 steerers and spare races if anybody wants any. I purposely left the steerer a little long and will see if it needs a trim once I get to ride this.
I've also fitted a BB and the Syncros forged crankset and put on the front Pauls brakes. I dont like the gold on the chainrings so they might have to go and I think the middle is too worn anyway so will need replacing either way.
The next issues are the rear brake bosses are to big and I'll need to replace them but the good news is I found a Answer Hyperlite bar and its on its way. This really just leaves finding a decent set of tyres and seatpost and then cabling it all up. Undoubtedly followed by more fettling and faffing.
