Love this!

Had a Bandwagon when the first came out, built with Biguns, XLite Phatso's, Magura Gustav Ms, Bomber dropoffs (resprayed in black). Great bike.
Got jumped by 5 guys whilst street riding in Manchester, guy I was riding with was cornered in so I couldn't get away without leaving him... bike was never seen again. Gutted!

You're right about cranks/BBs of the time being made of cheese


ah man, that's grim!

I must have ruined so many cranks when I younger, forever trying to extend their life by cutting up coke cans lol

Awesome project. Thanks for sharing, I remember your name from my 24 Seven, now sold, short so didn't even build it!
Love what you've done with this, still an authentic modified rider. The mix of new and old works perfect. I recently built a DMR Switchback for the GF, modern 10 speed on that but used a blue octalink Deore LX crank looks decent, first affordable 170 crankset I found, it won't get hammered if it is cheese.

Thanks, I am really please with how the build has turned out! It looks the part, and rides like a dream. I do need to urgently service the forks though, and hopefully I can keep them going! I am going to treat myself to a modern frame to sit alongside this, as whilst it is fun to thrash down some trails on, my lanky frame makes it a little uncomfortable. Have another photo

Not surprised you sold the 24seven, they were bomb proof frames but so very small and heavy!
