work in progress so far!! still sorting the frame out :)

will be built with some 1997 bomber z1's (have been resprayed black with red decals..) i have or possibly some SID's when the weather warms up a bit and i respray them.

am going for a black red and silver theme as there are a few bits of raceface stuff going on there.

heres how the frame used to look..

and heres how its looking at the moment!! in its rubbed down with 400 grit state.. needs rubbing down with a couple more grades of wet and dry then its autosol and dremel time to get a nice mirror finish! before building it back up! :) hopefully going to get a risse shock in there too when funds permit.

some more pics can be seen here!

Cool 8)

Try a tube of Autosol, then a few sessions with Brasso.

thats the plan! have seen your previous posts about polishing ;)

had a little test the other day with some felt wheels on the dremel and they worked beautifully with the autosol.. going to save me a fair bit of elbow grease in the long run!

Hi, build is looking good - have recently done one myself and about to do another. If you are going to replace the noleen with a Risse, would you consider selling your noleen?

i think the noleen is knackered to be honest but i think im going to keep it anyway if i fancy setting it back up as an original bike down the line,

i do have an RST shock im keeping as a spare for now that i might consider selling once and if i get the risse :)
