Just because really, rather than being particularly interesting.Boss wanted a bike building; he used to ride a lot in the early '90s but left it behind when his rally driving career took off. Wants to get back into riding and asked me to sort him a bike out. I took it as an opportunity to empty some of the drawers in my shed too, and this is the result:

Pretty light considering some of the parts, cost less than £300 to build too.

He was well chuffed when I gave it to him, I have threatened that if it doesn't get used enough I'm taking it back. He has got a ?late 80s/early 90s Nigel Dean frame and forks with smattering of parts that he's said he'll dig out of his garage for me, may well have been a good trade...
