Cheers!

Only thing is that my go-to painter is a powdercoat-kind of guy, which leaves me with RAL colors.. And these are quite limited when it comes to pink tones, I noted.
So, I'll have to see how that original plan is going to turn out.

Thanks, Melvin!

Took it out for a first nuts 'n bolts on road test ride today :D

It's an awesome bike!
The front canti brakes require some tweaking, but that's about it. And some cable ends, of course..

Viva Italia ;)

Some more 8)

Let's see if I can get hold of an RS Mag21 steerer/crown assembly in 1" (both threaded and ahead accepted), to have the opportunity to suspend the front end..

Would this qualify as a 'blue collar' build, BTW :lol: ;)..?

Took La Bella Donna ;) out for a spin today. It took a while before I found some dry trails; I don't really like ploughing through fresh mud..

Image

Image

Even discovered a stretch of a new trail that seems to be under construction still; hail to the builders :D!
Quite a nice variation of technical turns going both up and downhill. A bit bumpy though and that rigid steel back end was not so forgiving today, unfortunately..
Enjoyed the ride nonetheless!

Image

I'll save the cleaning for some other time :)

Cheers!
