I don't venture into the 1998 section too often these days, having had nothing to contribute since the sale of my Dekerf Implant, which was a little on the big side. I had my eye out for something similar and finally came across a small Samurai over in Canada. With a little help from a friend a deal was done and it was shipped over to the UK......about 3 years ago :oops:
No build thread for this one. I finally got it finished in August, in the nick of time for a planned trip to Bikepark Wales with a mate and our boys. Thanks go out to LGF for selling me a bundle of parts, at a great price, without which I wouldn't have managed to finish the build in time. I'd still like to make a few changed before I consider it finished.
Here's a couple of (terrible) pics to show that it actually exists and that I got it dirty!

3 years??? That's a long time to be holding on to a frame before a build. I wish I had your patience.

Swapped out the tyres for some Nobby Nics a while ago and replaced the pedals for some slightly less ugly ones
