The bolt that screws into the axle was seized but one of the technicians at my work was able to free it
So the forks (once i get a new axle bolt for them) are sound,
Brakes are fine, (Hope 3 & a mini Mono) a quick bleed and clean up and all pistons are moving nice and freely
Needs a new front tyre, and seatpost once (if I can get this damn one out)
Its turning in the frame, (and its cracked) but just wont bloody come out!!
The middleburns are fine
The 44 tooth ring is way too much for the sort of playing around this thing is gonna get as is the rear cluster, very close ratio, looks like a roadie cassette
Definately built with coming downhill (VERY) fast
Headset & bottom bracket are all fine and will be used again
Was definately a good buy, but needs a full respray or powdercoat as the paintwork has had its best
Plan is to try and get it up and running for thursday, as me and its new owner are both on a day off from work on Thurs so might take it and Mr O up the Bings
Some say, that he IS the love child of Superman and Chuck Norris
And that He is recognized by the queen of England as the only knight who still wears a helmet........................
All we know is he's called Enid
