Ok, I know its been a month, but sometimes you just got to take your time, plus I had a few silly little items to finish off.
I would like to post thanks to the following people that have helped create this bike from a simple pile of bits to what you see below, Sinnerman, Stubbsy, Gil_M & Mikee, these 4 (along with anyone else I have bought bits off) have helped create the bike and have been inspirational in its creation. Thank You. Oh, and Mrs Maverick for putting up with the dam bikes in the bedroom!
I think I will put a halt on bike builds for the minute and enjoy what I have got, no doubt something will come along that I like the look of and another ominously large box will arrive when I’m at work, and I will get the text message from the Mrs that simply says 'Another bike has arrived at home', that’s when I know that I have some explaining to do. But, forgiveness is easier to get than permission!
I wanted to do this one a little different as I was not keen on the style of the 1992 Alpinestars, I feel they kind of lost there way after starting so good.
Please feel free to comment on the build and the bike, but remember that I keep my builds under £300, so it wont be dripping with Pauls/Cooks/Campag or other high end stuff, its done on a budget to see what can be achieved.
