hope these are ok, its a 15inch frame 8)
paint has a few scars but im not sure which way to go with this, will probably be a slow build with paint sorted last if its getting sorted, as id then have the option to do it original or something else
thinking of m560 for it (or is it m567? arent they similar? that style anyway, black)

I'll watch your build with interest 'cos I'm using one of these- same colour etc - as my daily bike at the moment but it's getting near to the time for a fairly comprehensive rebuild. I agree with you about black parts although I'm going to stay with a threaded headset. I'd like to get it resprayed the same colour and hopefully get some new decals for it.
Best of luck with your build. :D

What is certain is that I'll keep it 3 x 7 gripshift, cantis and I'd like to keep to a threaded headset. At the moment it's got the original Acera X mechs which will be replaced, and the original crankset (alloy cranks, steel rings) which have had the threads stripped by the previous owner (abuser) so getting to square one of the build could prove interesting! The rims are shot but I've git a pair of black Mavic Crossland rims on Mavic hubs which will be a nice upgrade. What I'd like to do and what my finances say I can do are not necessarily compatible!:( I'll keep tou posted. :D
