Picked up this little pup during the week. Having been for a spin round the woods, , I'm very glad I did!
It has a lot of rust veins, but they seem superficial.
Off to get powdercoated next week... :D
All the red componentry is not intentional; it's what I had lying around, honest. :P

I have a pretty good idea on colour, but I'm liable to change my mind before it's done.
I'm always open to suggestions... :D
Build wise, it'll be 1x8, rigid, and quite light. As pictured it weighs in at just under 10 kg (The wheels are quite heavy) from a frame weight of 1.75kg.

I quite like the look of it as it is. I know it has to get new paint, maybe something similar...The fade is so nice 8) Would look stunning with matching forks.

Thanks for the right noises , fellas! :D
I am kinda lucky to have found these bikes, and I now feel content with the frames I have. Componentry can be sorted as and when.
I think I've found a good powdercoater, so I'll be on the phone to find out if they can do the sort of finish I'm after.
Fingers crossed!
