not the original paint or decals :wink:

As roy walker would say "good answer, good answer...........but wrong!"

need a nice day, a good camera and an exotic location for the pics might struggle with that :lol: :lol:

anyway mine is better as it is the right size (for me.)


Mines the right size for me too. Getting pics might be tricky for you though as its a puffy fannybaws garage queen. Mines a rider. And for that it gets a Brucie Bonus point.

Bars are to early that is true but are nicer looking than either the xc or salsa IMHO and xc900 was available in 86 as an option and no on both requests :lol:

Can't believe you've built a bike you won't ride properly Gaz! - Man up and get it dirty.

It takes a man of fortitude and great principals to preserve a thing of beauty and not just say "feck it" and ride the arse off it.

Don't worry I have a cunning plan- more later :wink:

Does this plan involve sitting it on the turbo trainer with a picture of some trees taped over one eye and another picture of Kaiser's big ring over the other eye??
