Hi everyone,

This year i wanted a summer project, so i split my faithful old zaskar down to the frame to rebuild it in time for then... So may is here and now that the UK sun is making an early appearance, its given me a nudge to get started 8)
Ive been slowly collecting parts for the last year, and ive got enough to make a rolling chassis, so fingers crossed it should be a quick build from here on out..

The graphics ive just replaced, and for a 24yr/o rider the frame really is in lovely condition.

it took a while to find a pair of GT bologna Lite forks that had a 1 1/8" ahead steerer, which hadn't been hacked down stupidly short. But i found these ones on ebay amongst a job-lot of crap with a "sum bike parts 4 sale" type description :lol:

they were tatty, a faded pale green colour with surface rust but most importantly that steerer tube was uncut at around 200mm. So i took them down to the guy i use for all my motorcycle powdercoating and they came back like this
