Another custom Apollo here

http://www.bikeradar.com/forum/viewtopi ... lo&start=0

Not a bad effort considering the start point is a BSO

I'd not spend/waste (delete as appropriate) my cash seeing if you could polish a turd/BSO (delete as appropriate) though as the money spent on doing it up could have bought a half decent bike in the first place.

I like it.

If you have the bits already excluding frame then why not?

Reading the Bike radar thread it says that Merida made this style of bike for Apollo amongst others.

I know any manufacturer can bodge a frame together but .......

Will be keeping an eye one for one now :lol:

If its cheap enough and you have room/parts/can be bothered as an experiment?

Dont expect it to be light though.
