OK, received frame today in the post......

Image


Time to hacksaw off the canti' bosses, these will (very carefully) be linished flush later and I'll fit some Crud Guard bosses to the downtube......

Image


Then the frame will be dipped (to strip the paint) and powder coated gloss white, whith repro black Kona decals applied to the correct design.

The forks also arrived, these will be off to the spray booth once I've hand stripped the paint to be painted gloss black.......

Image


Gotta love the embosed lettering, pure class.

Image


The brakes arrived today too, XT Dual Control F+R acting on 203mm & 180mm Aries discs.....

If anybody know the seatpost size that would be a great help.

27.0 seams loose, but a 27.2mm bar down there is very, very tight.

Last night I got busy with the angle grinder & a 3.5" flappy wheel. Then this lunchtime some fine emery cloth & ultra sonic measurements take to make sure the thickness is still OK..........

The frame has now been soda blasted & is at the powder coaters, will be done this week.

Forks stripped & new seals fitted, legs have also been blasted & are off being wet sprayed.
