Nice camera work on that Elite! Great stuff!


Thanks. I need to get some decent pics of my Bravado too. The Zaskar will take some time though as it's a long term resto project.

Love the quality of some of the GT's in this thread.
That LTS-1 of fingers' is fantastic with the matching rear end.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Eventually :roll:

Different saddle and tyres as ive since sold them and maybe XT m739 vs instead of those LX ones.
Tyres will probably be the super x bonty ones of my other bike and the recipient can buy his own saddle.

Might get it finished before summer ends :lol:

Studded tyres are too good for the likes of me,i'd ruin them on the pavement......[ROAD,i meant road,im not saying im a pavement peddler :lol: ]

Best someone that likes winter offroad uses them.

Technically not mine, it's my lads he's 11. GT hotrod project, modified to take discs repowdercoated and built up using a spare set of wheels and a few new parts. It's a tiny 14.5" frame :D

It's been a bit of job, i don't know what spacing early Bombers had but it's not IS, so the leg had to be modified to take IS calipers and i had to CNC a new 177mm disc to fit it, made the rear one too while i was at it.

Then the canti mounts were trimmed off and away to the powdercoaters it went.
