Nice work.

Same here. I have one myself. It's mint but been boxed for years. This may inspire me to modernise the build if I ever get round to it.

My hope was to go retro with the rebuild. Unfortunately, very little was salvageable as it had been in a basement that flooded with salt water years ago during a hurricane. At that point, modernizing was my best option and now I’m glad. Really happy with how it came out. And the ride is phenomenal. I’m not a weight watcher but the fact that it comes in at just over 24 pounds is a bonus.

What you need to finish it off is a rear disc mount. They are available on here. I was going to build mine up using amp forks and discs, but sold the brakes (and wheels).
