I am dead happy with the weight, lighter than my Smokestone but the wheels do help with that.
I have looked to keep everything period and most things are from around 1996-1999. The brakes are the latest and ironically the forks (biggest contention for me!) are the earliest!
Here are a few pictures as it stands now.
Still a long "to do" list as you can see from the state of some of the parts. I have bought everything on a budget so a few things are in need of TLC.
The cranks need the black ano striping, they will then be polished.
The levers need the lacquer striping, they will also then be polished.
I also need some sort of 1" bung for the stem and the rear wheel has a broken spoke. The flite is pretty ropey and if it doesnt polish well I would like a green one.
I will have to see how I get on with the gear ratio, the 46t is BIG so may need smaller, and I may need to add a link or 2 to the chain. I have never ran a road mech before so it is a bit trial and error.
The paint has come down to x2 options although it will be green and black with white decals courtesy if Gil.
1. My preferred option but expensive,
2. The classic Overbury's fade and more cost effective (LGF pic hope thats OK),
So what do people think??? Any ideas on what people may change are appreciated along with opinions on the paint. (for reference I reckon the top one would be about £50-£100 more.)
