and a few more pics


Hopefully retrobike sticker will arrive soon, I'll be taking this to the Rivington ride if it doesn't fall apart later.

File comment: IRC Mythos tyres... £10 for the pair, both fronts... I've spun the one on the back round. Should be reet!

File comment: New canti bolts, just chrome ones to keep it tastefully original. I have the front reflector bracket in my coat pocket. I'm after some touch up paint.

Maiden voyage completed succesfully. A brief but soggy trip around Croxteth Park here in Liverpool... Seems to be my testing grounds for recently built bikes.

What a nice bike to ride... I was worried about the frame size with the short reach stem, but it's not proved a problem.

The brakes are awful, I'm thinking maybe new pads... Plus they need toeing in badly.

Love the thumb shifters... So less complicated than rapidfire triggers.

I'll give the photos a rest now.

Headset tightened, rust spots treated and touched up (with model paint, heh), new brake blocks all round.

Ready for my first RetroBike ride in Rivington tomorrow.

Now I need to start looking for my next modern bike.

I mixed a colour from royal blue and white. It's a tiny bit darker but better than Kurust black Hehe.
