Roll up, roll up - Build-a-Bike for me for Drumlanrig. Help me dress Macretro's very own 1990 Shonkjumper... Choose from a wide selection of parts over the next few days, and create a singlespeed for your's truly.

The massive has spoken, and the Bullmoose bars win by a margin of 3 votes.

Next up, Peter Piper picked a pair of anodized brake levers.

Option 1 - Period Correct - Suntour XC Pro levers (I think).
Image

Option 2 - More '80s - Chunky Dia Compe 4 fingered goodness.
Image

Option 3 - X-Lite-a-like - Tektro's finest. Quite a nice deep red that doesn't quite go with the decals - could almost be X-Lite with strategically placed mud.
Image

Option 3 - X-Lite-a-like part Bluex - See above, but blue - for the colour blind amongst you.
Image

May finish this later tonight so we can move things along :)

Suntour, what Suntour :?
I thought Dia Compe made brake stuff for Maeda Industries bike groupsets, just cause its badged Suntour doesn't really mean its real does it, I'm now confused. I voted for properly badged Dia Compe 4 fingered goodness because I'm old fashioned and it goes with the bars :wink:
