I got them from Paul Components, you can buy the normal silver BMX MotoLites at any of their dealerships however.

Very nice bike and seeing your component choice, a very interesting build! Curious to see how it will end!

All will be revealed over time, I'm not rushing the build...... bits and pieces are coming in slow dribs and drabs which is fine in my book. And admittedly the bike won't be to everyone's cup of tea.

Received some equipment back from being re-anodised....

L&M Cranks before:

And after:

Image


Alteks before:

Image

Altek lever bodies after:

Image

Alteks rebuilt:

Image


Ringle H2O:

Image


Lock-Ons grip securing rings:

Image


Thomson bits - not sure about these to be fair, more on this in a moment.....

Image

Image

Not sure about the re-ano'd Thomson bits to be honest, I have a red Ringle Zooka that will be being fitted and desperately trying to find a red (or any colour to be honest) 27.2 Moby (rare as hen's teeth!) to match. The Thomson kit is to fall back on.
