Well I've been getting this together for a while and now its done so I thought i best post it up!

Bought the frame a while back on the bay, paint was a bit battered and it had a couple of wee dents in the top tube. Wasn't really to fussed as i planned on getting it re-sprayed (white at the time. . . ) So off to Bob Jackson’s it went and I decided on Ivory instead (well its like white but not white!) Earlier 90's decals fitted as i much prefer them and the 631 decal tucked away down by the bb. Bit of a mixed bag of parts, nothing too new but tried to keep it all in a similar vain, (matt black and polished parts) and some nice shinny red Hope wheels to finish it off (Cheers 95explosif)

Nice. I saw one of these yellow Kilaueas abandoned and stripped nekkid in the High St yesterday. It's ripe for liberation, but is secured with a mutha of a lock.
