Is a build ever done? Perhaps. I still need a couple pieces to truly finish this bike and give me 'closure' ;). But these minor tweaks won't really change the look, and what you see here is pretty much the finished. It is so satisfying having the right stem on it, just looks and feels right. The cockpit controls are back to my original setup from 1988, with the ODI mushroom grips and 4-finger XT levers. These tires were my faves back in the day, and still feel awesome to this old dog. Speaking of canines, I am loving the silver dogbone cranks. Ahhh...

Thanks k-rod, here is a photo of it, currently on my wall as part of my rotating living room display. It still gets ridden though! I change them out every month, it's my vintage calendar.

Thanks Sand-man! I need to get some modern tires on it at some point so I can ride without fear of my vintage rubber disintegrating in a cloud of dust 10 km down the trail...
