Hey all,

Picked up this black/green limited edition Chute off a friend.
He's had the frame in his loft for years and just wanted rid of it.
I've been looking at some of the retro Chute builds on here and would love to do the same.
Only my knowledge of bikes is limited to riding them.

Anyone have any ideas how to make this a nice easy build for myself?
Maybe a donnor bike?

Nick

It depends on what you want. Do you want a hard core off roader, a return to stock or just something to ride around? Begin with the end in mind. Your time frame matters too because sometimes parts can be hard to find if you want something specific.

Hey man,
Thanks for the reply.
Just something to ride around. Best of both worlds really off road and on.
Ideally I'd buy a donnor bike and just use all the bits.
I wouldn't know where to start if starting from scratch...
