Oh yeah and visually the bb length looks good. Looking down through the chain device the cog is pretty much centre, but until I get a chain on it wouldn't like to say for certain.

Had a bounce in the kitchen if that counts? 2.25 tyre clears the seat stay, but a bolt head on the brake arm is snagging on the spokes.
Piece of cake to sort though. ;)

Another couple of days fettling and messing with knives!

bb swapped out, plastic cup had shattered inside the frame and the spindle was too long anyway. So now it's got a shorter 118mm bb with metal cups. Lol

Rear brake outer fitted. Disc is here, just waiting on bolts to arrive.
Countersink Bolts for the rear caliper also on their way.

Rear gear cable fitted. Looking for a shifter. :(

Manky 151 decals sliced, so now they're neat and tidy. They just say Rockshox and Boxxer now.
Red shimano decals added, Vans decals added -proper sponsors back then, and some Mint Sauce literature aswell just for fun.

Front end lowered.

So yeah, just waiting on a shifter really. Oh and a front brake. Everything else is on eBay in a buy now format so no real issue.
