Hi all i have just picked up a s/h thorn raven enduro frame from robin this morning i have been after one for sometime (since i worked at SJSC 8 or so years ago) as it was a enduro model it was disc only onthe rear but after 15 minutes in the well equiped frame shop i whad brazed on some canti bosses,so after a very nice pub lunch i striped the SS clockwork (i know ive said to friends i would never strip it for a new build) and built up this i know its not a retro F+F but the parts are.

Cool. What are those forks? I saw an older gent on a flat barred tourer in Cardiff the other week, it had those forks or very similar. I didn't catch the frame make as he zoomed off from the lights and I had too turn left :(

Nice job with the cantie bosses... And Aston seems to like the bike :D

I have always liked the Raven Enduros... Are you going to pop the frame back in to SJSC for a new coat of paint and decals?? I would...

The forks are thorn Mt.-Tura made from reynolds tubing for Thorn cycles
