That's wicked, in the words of one of my favourite bands....'you don't need eyes to see, just vision'......Maverick, what a fantastic job you have done. The stickers look awesome but I gotta agree with others, even I haven't got a girlie saddle, surely you don't need all that padding! lol :lol:

I'm with the general consensus, go with the turbo! I got mine from St John's St cycles and they have them in stock!

I love it though, looks the part...! :D

So here we finally have my first finished project.

It started life as 2 sets of old PACE forks that where sat under the stairs doing nothing which went off Evilbay and has ended up with this.

To finish it I have changed the saddle, skewers and the yellow brake blocks. I have also fitted new amber walls to give it the retro edge, I know I am biased, but I think it looks ace.

The next project has been started already……..another Alpinestars E-stay.

......erm..........Pink :D

Its the frame i got from you, its at the painters at the moment, was meant to collect it Friday, but too cold to go out, will collect it tomorrow.

Will start a build history of this one when i get the frame back rather than at the end like the last.
