Hello, kinda new to the forums and thought i should share my project.
It's an old DBS frame that i got dirt cheap from my LBS, when brought home it was kitted with some Shimano Altus stuff and some other crap.

Specc sheet when its done:
Frame: DBS

Fork: Coming

Headset: Coming
Stem: Coming
Handlebar: Coming
Bar Tape: Coming

Brake Levers/Brifters: Shimano 600
Brake Calipers: Shimano 600
Brake Pads: Coming
Brake Cables: Coming

Shifters: Shimano 600
Front Derailleur: Shimano 600
Rear Derailleur: Shimano 600
Derailleur Cables: Coming

The plan is to strip it, paint it and kit it with Shimano 600 all over or as much as possible.

The paint was hard as rock so i borrowed a sandblaster from a friend, no pics of the fram after the sandblasting.

Hey, yes they are Norwegian.
And a little fun fact, DBS stands for Den Beste Sykkel (The Best Bike) :D
