Nothing too exciting, but nice enough to keep - saved from the skip - my brother's old bike #1 (#2 is the Trek Y3 thread).

Pretty sure everything is original (added barends I guess), not in bad condition apart from where it's been badly stacked on a bike rack.

Plan is to swap the better stuff from the Y3 to replace the aceraX level stuff on the Hahanna and get a quill adapter to run a slightly more modern stem/fork combo I have hanging around. Will take 2-3 weeks as time and space is at a premium atm.

Long term it'll be a nippers play bike, short term it'll be a pub/holiday bike with slicks.

Cheers, thought it was a 97, which was a more "deep purple" and ordered some white tyres :unsure:

Cleaned up the seatpost and swapped the brakes over before I had to go sledging with the kids. :xmas-big-grin:

Have some period (ish) easton stuff to go once the quilladaptor shows up.

Lovely bike...but
The White tyres look completely wrong in my opinion.

Yeah, I agree - I might stick them on the wife's tiny inbred and steal her Geax Roadsters which are similar but in black.

Will see if it looks as bad once the tyres have been used a bit.

Black would be much better. I'd also look for a black seatpost

I like the white tyres! Red/black/white looks good. Black seatpost & chainset would look great 8)

I am - think I scared a seller off as I'm in ireland, but use parcelmotel (uk address) to make deliveries generally cheaper.

At least, he's not gotten back to me after the last pm :oops:

3' torque wrench and a gallon of penetrating oil. :D

Most of the drive chain swopped over - waiting on some matching brake levers and a black seatpost. Fitted the chain before I fitted the front mech :oops: - wee bit carried away.

Rear Mech is bashed, but the jockey wheels are in brilliant condition.

Really starting to like the white tyres - missus hates them 8)

Not much more to do but need the brake levers to show up before I can finish up cables etc.
