Finally received the floval flyer in the post today after much wrangling with parcelforce and HM customs along the way :). It turned out better than I expected with nicely aged orig decals and still shiny bare alloy, helped by a spot of 'buffing' by me and the brasso whilst watching James Bond on the telly. This one is from around 92 or 93 I believe with the pitbull brake mount on the chainstay wishbone, a rare beastie so I'm told.

All I need to work out now is whether to fit skyway cruiser mags or spoked wheels...must say I'm tempted by the mags option though. Also a set of GT stamped profile cranks would be nice. If only it wasn't christmas and I had more than zero cash flow :(

Congratulations, that's lovely. I like the Flovals and the Quads probably a little more than the Ripper :shock: (awaits flaming :) )

I'd forgotten about pitbul brakes!

Yeah, the Pitbull models were pretty rare beasts

Go with Spokes (as 24" mags look sooo Council!)

Finally getting around to putting the thing together now after deciding that it is getting a bit sunny :) I'm going for a subtle gold theme as can be seen. Will add more (better) pics when I've finished tonight but need to get out of the flat due to excessive buliders tea consumption making me a bit hyperactive :?
