One last question regarding the DY's do I use it as is OR do I get it re-painted by Dave Yates in the same colour?

If your using the NOS Suntour stuff get it painted! You've got pleeeenty riders, get this one built as a showpiece 8) A few measurements should tell yah if it will fit or not.

Just finished building up my Klunker for the Repack weekend.

I need to get some pics when the rain stops but here is a wee preview

Image

Its a complete rebuild. The only things remaining from the original build being the frame (completely stripped, chainstay repaired, all joints re-brazed and repainted), bars, seatpost (straightened out) and stem (stil rusty).

It now runs Atom drum brakes on wide steel Arayas, a Chrome Tange TX Cruiser fork, a new Brooks B72, and a TA double cankset 38/50 instead of the 30/42/52.

Looking forward to bringing it along to Glentress on the 21st :P

Getting there :D
I just need to put up lining paper ,maybe with a heavy paper over it or maybe just paint it,wont know till the lining paper is up and i can see if the lumps on the wall show through.
The structure that was there took up a fair amount of floor space[28 square feet]it now makes the room 19'x12' and it looks it :D
