Yeah, it was steve who put me in touch with the seller of the above F&F's and I'm in touch regarding decals as we speak :wink:

I had a pair of pink ladder bars bitd aswell. I had my old frame resprayed blue and then sold it to a local kid in late 80's for 50 quid, including the bars!!!!!

The hunt is on to track it back down, I'm hoping its in someones shed/garage not 200metres from where I used to live ready to be liberated :wink:

Well, I can dream can't I LOL :lol:

I let mine go complete at its peak for £125 - then brought it back 4 years later when it ha dbeen RAPED :shock: - resprayed with ALL THE PARTS STILL ON...FFS! - got it all sorted then took it to uni with me where is was stolen within 2 weeks.... gutted.

Living the dream again now though!

good luck on the build - if you find 1 original DP stunt peg and you need another then give me a shout... as I have one that needs a partner :)
