After several months of sourcing parts and building this up, it's nearly there! just need brake and gear cables, which have been ordered.

I originally bought the frame and forks on it's own and have slowly built it up from there. I was lucky enough to come across a seller who was selling '92 Tequesta parts and so most of what I have is from his old bike.

I've touched up the black part of the paint job using Humbrol paint and the same with the white stripes. I couldn't get hold of new graphics, despite several emails to companies, so I re-touched those myself using extremely fine brushes and a jewellers loupe.

The new cables should be here this week, so as soon as they arrive i'll get them set up and will take it for a spin :D

Thanks to the sellers on here for the parts that I bought for this :wink:

I've looked at those threads of yours many times, there's just something about the '92 Tequesta isn't there :D

Been busy today, but will take some better (closer) pics over the next few days :wink:
