Funnily enough, green's the theme for the GT, decals and bolts, etc. But I'll give the polishing a bash and see where it goes.

I'm voting fixie for your next project... and a pair of hipsters of course.

Commuter might be an option but I really need to stay away from bikes it's an expensive habit :lol:

No can do on the headset Kaiser, the GT's got one of them stupid semi-integrated jobs.

Wotcha got big fella? I've got all the bolts I need, but looking set of skewers. Matching bars and seatpost (27.2) would be well funky, and a set of green cranks would be fantastico

well i solved the m10 bolt problem today :D i threaded some m10 bosses right down to the bottom then cut the tops off right down to the collar , used a bolt with 2 nuts locked onto each other to screw it into the frame after blasting them with threadlock :D

now the disc mount uses normal m6 bolts to mount it to the frame....

and i'm not going for perfection so just needs a lick o paint........

now i just need to make another 2 of them :lol:

Top bodgin eckles 8) One thing though, if you screwed the M10 adaptors below the swingarm bosses, this would allow your home made fitting to sit on the mount. When you them tighten your M6 bolts it would help lock the M10 adaptors. If you know what I mean. Might no be nessecary though but if your taking it apart again you could try it.
