Postie brought this little lot today . . .

Image

A few period correct bits (Momentum headset and Odyssey A brake) but it'd have been rude not to add a splash of purple to bring it up to date . . . never thought I'd say that this side of '92 :lol:

It'll be built up with most early 2000's Planet X kit poached off my Inbred for the mo' but I know it's crying out for a Shorty stem and a pair of polished Z2 Lights.

Bought the frame off ebay last week complete with a new spare decal set. The original decals were a little scuffed but nothing a little tlc and touch up paint couldn't fix so the new decals are still in their packaging. The paint was in pretty good nick so although a respray would be nice I'd like to keep it all original for now. Came up a treat with a little Turtle Wax 8)

Image

Fingers crossed I'll have it up and running by the weekend.

It looks fantastic, so much so that it'd be a crime to get it dirty :?

Further update . . . with apologies to those of a nervous disposition for the colour co-ordination :wink:

Puff of wind handlebars have now made way for these NOS bad boys . . .

. . . and a quick tyre change means I can actually ride the thing now without feeling I'm towing a barge.

Love it! :D

Cool 8) . If I ever feel the need for a respray I reckon I'll go for Metalhead blue.
