Will change the tyres down the track.

Im using Small Black's as they are good off road and they have low resistance for commuting.

Dont have any disks brakes in my collection so V's are the go.

Thanks.......

Looks great with the SIDs on it. Maybe a black chainset?

Decided on a re-build on this as I had some disc brakes and picked up some new shocks......

Still undecided if this is the way to go or if I should go back to the original build of Sids and V Brakes....

Still a bit of work to do......

Lovely bike, I like a good zaskar.
I think both builds look good, but if I am honest i definitely prefer the look of the blue sids and V's. However I have a set of reba's on a modern bike and they are amazing so I can see why you might stick with them.

Decided on a few changes and sourced some additional parts.

The plan is to build a 2 x 9.

The story so far in pictures....
