It's finished, again! Frame number two is now finished. Just undecided on the tyres. Picked up some bargain butterscotch Maxxis tyres of the Ebay. Is it Butterscotch or is it green what do you think? The butterscotch are less in your face but the green screams retro to me. I'm sure coloured tyres are a bit like Marmite though.
Loads of people on here have helped again, my sincerest thanks to you all.
I would still, when finance allows, like to get a better saddle and a shorter stem. I have a pair or USE bars waiting to go on but I want to get them re anodised first along with the seatpost. Hasn't had a proper ride yet but it looks so shiny I do't want to get it muddy!
