Looks like a great colour, are you going with the original decals?

Thanks Marty

Haven't decided on what decals yet...
Will probably try and get originals decals, but not sure what colour to get them in. The yellow on blue frame originals were good but yellow would be far too light against this.


Nice simple black decals would look very nice on that cream colour.
Looks like a nice finish too!

I've started trying to get this together albeit that work and other commitments keep getting in the way.

Here it is starting to take some shape:

The bright November light (!) is making it look more white than it is - it's a creamy cappucino kind of colour.

Very good question. :oops:
I have been useless as work commitments and impending wedding (next week...eek) are/have taken precedent. I did take it out and looked at it again last week. Have 'ghost' fitted the parts that I have acquired - XT bottom bracket, lx rear mech, lx v brakes, xt front mech, stx-rc shifters. Just need a chainset, chain and cables. Think the chainset will be the lx one from my kona.

I'm hoping to have it built up after I return from honeymoon. Feel bad it has taken me so long to fix up but this is also my first 'real' build myself, trying to do it all myself rather than go to the lbs all the time. So a steep learning curve!

And since then?

This is getting into dangerously long territory!
