I got this frame from Passiflora about this time last year. It needed rebushing, but having a proven track record with bushes ( :shock: ) this didn't deter me... Nick sold it too me for a mega good price and even included the Syncros post!

Well' it's took me a year to gather the bits but it's pretty much complete and went for it's maiden ride this evening... Still need a front mech and the two inner chain rings, but it's quite rideable on the flatlands around here!

Thanks to Nick for the frame, wheelset levers and calipers, Brocklanders for the fork and a massive shout to Dangermouse who drove all the way from Hull to fix my rear shock and wouldn't take a penny for it. You sir a credit to Retrobike!

Sorry for the gag in the first paragraph... What do i have to do to get a banner saying Bushmeister....? :D :D )

Anyway, enough of my yacking - here's the pics!

Was wondering where this went just yesterday when i was looking at the new tomacs!

I like how you have kept it simple yet effective and matched the bars 8)
Not too sure on the dualies and the saddle though.

Yeah needs a different saddle & the dual levers are not for everyone!

Would like a different stem too...

Forks could use a respray as well!

Rides like you're floating... :D :D :D

Only other thing is I'd like a slightly wider bar...
