its been nearly a year and i still havent got around to finishing this thread. the heckler has been ridden almost daily and its had a lot of use in that time.... from looking at it, you can probably tell as the condition has declined a lot from the shiny frame you see on page 1.
work that needs doing is, the forks need to be rebuilt,( they are still plush but play is starting to develop and they dont sound too healthy at times either) the bike also needs a service with new cables. (the gears dont work properly the cranks creak etc) and it clearly needs to be cleaned and polished
the bike has had the tires changed. why i bought them in the first place is a mystery as the grip is terrible on and off road, and also the thomson stem has been swapped for a more period azonic shorty which i much prefer.
anyway plans are to strip it down completely to do the work and gradually put it back together (got a few new bits to go on)
heres some pics.
