Right, bikes done and had its first ride :lol:

I'm sure you'll notice it looks a bit different :shock:. Basically once the bike was built up the early decals where just not working for me, really didn't suit my build which is a shame but decided to just sticker it to suit the bike!

Plus I think its all about building that childhood dream bike and this is it for me now. I love it :lol:

So thanks to Gil for another set of decals sent out super quick :P

Some pictures....

Thanks guys :)

It rode great ! Its funny but it felt just like my avalanche did back in '96, felt like I was riding that again only with shocks.

I need to look at the back brake as its not working correcttly, doesn't seem to want to adjust center so went I release the brake one side is still hitting the pad but i'll sort that and the gears are not 100% but for a first ride it went well. Nothing fell off anyway lol

I didn't go anything to taxing with it, did about 6 miles of road riding but it was nice and smooth :)

It was weird but it seemed like I was getting a lot of looks admiring it haha

Ihaha


sounds like a quarter turn or so either way of the little phillips head spring adjustment screw should sort that. it will centre the brake for you
