Intersting build thread. I think the overall result is very impressive.
I remember drilling parts of my bike BITD as you have done, never had any issues with any of it.

What's next then?? :D

just seen your botm entry so thought i'd have a read through. pleased i did.

love the colour code detail on the "k"'s

love the drilling and polighing - i dare say you could make money out of that.

love the filling in of the top tube flare too - prefer it to the original.

paint looks goon on screen but in the flesh i can understand it often doesn't look as good. but still, a great job.

you must be very proud.

just a thought, have you considered tying the shifters and levers into the back end with some choice drilling and polishing?

Got a polished XTR mech for sale here:

And a 105 mech here, (would work up to a 28T sprocket on an MTB):

Updated a bit after I stripped this down for some bits I needed off it.

Mainly new wheels and tyres.

The bike has done allright, but a few scuffs and chips appearing.

Yeah, I'm not holding out much hope for the tyres. Never had white ones before, and these were real cheap, so just got them for a change.
