Bought from fishagj on here, needing alot of love but excited none the less! :D
First things first.... Assessment.

Paint: Rubbish white. Lumpy, chipped, yuk yuk yuk yuk...
Rear mech hanger is bent, Headset is incomplete, no rear brake but there's an A2Z mount on there. That'll have to do for now.

Gold external BB removed, Ugly AC seatpost removed
Bag of spare parts opened: 2 more bits to the headset, but still incomplete :lol:
Full bearing kit from BETD with receipt and some bushings. Bonus.

Pics up. One snazzy eBay library photo, one grotty workshop realtime photo. :P

The website that's got the 317's has D521 aswell, but that's a rim brake wheel isn't it? Got no V mounts on my frame. =( Might have another look through the website though and see if they have 321.

The BB is a Raceface external and it's gold. Will be selling that. :lol:

Headset is hope. Seems to be missing something from the top. Don't think it's a normal star nut + stem cap type. :? Looks like it needs a BIG bolt and something to go inside the steerer tube.
Ideas?

EDIT: It's one of these

Yeah I threw that seat on just for a laugh.
Would be rude not to have a bounce on it on day one! :wink:

Might have a mooch over to the wanted section then and see about the seatpost.

Mavic D521 has a braking surface which is why I thought rim brake. What do you reckon?
http://www.winstanleysbikes.co.uk/produ ... 21_SUP_Rim

Got the top of the headset, just need that silver bolt and whatever goes inside the steerer. Does this model headset have a name? "Hope headset" on Google is a bit vague! :lol:

Yeah i dont think that braking surface is wide enough for a pad
Could be tough
Maybe email them and ask?

I think there may be a rim brake d521 :?

Err that headset is just a hope headset :lol:

I know the bit you mean, long rod with a plate that sits under the fork crown/steerer tube but I can't find it while googling? The diagram doesn't really show it either..

I'd like to know where he got them frame stickers, you have any idea?
I'm trying as hard as I can to source decals for the boxxers but even copies of period ones are impossible to find.

I'm getting a bit scared on powder coat, there is a lot of talk about ruining the heat treated frame and I can't decide whats true or not.
My local guy is cheap and is super confident but thats my problem with him, no matter what I say, he pretty much says 'yea, we can do that, easy'. :roll:
