it just reminds me of the late 70s when it was cool to drill everything. I remember watching a guys rampantly drilled seatpost snap off at Hertford Crits. Laughed myself silly that day. :D

Very nice work and hopefully safely done - although I'm not sure about the seat pin top being milled out however neatly it's been done!

Anyone got any idea what the top and bottom pivot 'bolts' are on the NR rear mechs? They don't look like standard ones to me unless they've been 'modified' as well.
