Nice 8)

Got the paint stripped off the GT Bravado frame, still got the forks and stem to do, would post pics but it's just a bare steel frame :lol: , after threatening for a while (nearly did with the DH8) going to paint this one.


RRRRRRRAAAAAASTAAAAAAAAMMMMAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNN

Will have green, gold, red and blue anodized bits.

Also bought a 3.9 litre Rover V8 motor for the Escort project will post pics of that in the motors bit in a wee while :)


Looking forward to the pics jimi.

Might use your services on the rasta front at some stage, would love to get the 29er gt a decent colour one day.

I already have met my doom and its you Dave :roll:

Anyhoo we really need one of these:
http://www.mtbtandems.com/EllsworthSpecial.htm

You'se lot missed a GREAT weekend in the lakes. Riding to the pub over what was assumed to be an easy bridleway without proper lights most without helmets only to realise it was well technical and 4 crashes resulted though only pride damaged, I didn't crash thank gawd :lol:
Munching grilled steaks fresh from BBQ with loads of booze in a great setting talking rubbish in the retro way 8)
The day of the ride was fantastic with great scenery although first half slow due to my 4 mechanicals (2 x punctures,snapped chain and malfunctioning gears) :oops: Cathedral cave was amazing and much of the riding was sufficiently technical that I was glad I was on a full sus.
I'm now completely kanackered and I'm taking the morning off work to get myself together :roll: :D
