Almost there. I’m pretty happy so far. Still needs work, some parts need a tidy up but at least it’s all there now.

Need to source a decal set for it this week. Fit the correct BB, and chain.

Mmmmmm bar ends or not? What are your thoughts? I say yes but my son says no! Thinking silver xlite shorties. Or an anodised colour, once I decide on the decal colour? I think blue is standard but I’ve already got a zaskar with blue bits so fancy something different. All suggestions welcome.

New decals should be ready tomorrow, BB should be here tomorrow, and NOS hubs are expected mon/tue. Looks like I’ll be building wheels next week. Last few parts always seem to take ages!!!

As it is a rider I'd have bar ends. Silver shorties would suit that - I like the simple silver and black theme a lot.

Cheers for that Jon, my thoughts exactly. Silver shorties are on the shopping list, and just decided today to have only the blue decals. No other blue parts will be fitted.

Found these in the spares box today, not quite what I was after. However five mins with a hacksaw and they were much improved! Bonus as they were free too.

While waiting on parts to arrive..... boredom set in! Had a couple of hours spare last night, which turned into a spending spree. Now waiting in an xt front and rear mech. Still hope to have the build finished by next Saturday. As long as the parts arrive.
