I love that- try and find some big 4 finger levers for it and it will be perfect (not easy i know as they are V levers but some bodging and parts robbing to make frankenlevers might be a possibility)

How about matching the green on the bars and putting some Breezer/ Schwinn style darts on that frame?? That would be sub zero cool 8) ?

I quite like the idea of those old 4 finger Dia Compe levers with the kind of ball shape where it pivots. Might just put canti's on it just for them. I'm not going fast on it after all :wink: Then I'll need some green Chill Pills (weren't there some for sale on here recently?).

Darts as in paint scheme? 8)
