Got some silver bars as in '92. I can't seem to get the same grips again, at least not in the right colour so I went for some Oury grips which look similar and are a close colour.
I can't afford separate DX thumbies and XT levers which I used to have so I bought some XT SLR plus STI levers instead for a good price off here. They are what I really wanted but couldn't afford in '92. Funny how things swap around in value - thumbies were the cheap option back then IIRC.
Anyway, apart from the bar ends the controls are done:
There is no way I'll be able to afford the DX hubs/Mavic 231 rins I had back then but I will have available a similar looking STX based wheelset soon.
Stripped the crap off the bike so it looks a bit happier.
Next stage is B&Q to get some bits for cleaning up and polishing bits. Going to strip the frame of all its parts and clean it up, followed by touching up the decals and paint with acrylic paint (wife is an artist) then a gloss lacquer over the top. Hopefully this should make the frame and forks look quite fresh. At least the decals are pretty good.
Still needing bits and bobs though. I'm not sure if I want some but does anyone have the Shocktech forks, V1? Pink decals etc.
