Now got all the parts and contacts.

Hubs and rims into Merlin today for a build - if I did it they would be octagonal!

Away for a week from Saturday for a week but then the frame and forks are into Triple S for powder coating.

Thanks to everyone on here who has sold parts towards this - hope I can do you justice!

Getting lots of questions from my other half as to why I've " built the bike you were on about (Saracen) but all these parcels are still arriving!"
Running out of bullshit/space!!!

Thanks

Going to have the frame powder coated a pale candy blue, so thought a touch of blue (hubs, spider, rings, skewers and decals) would set it off nicely.

Need to crack on with removing old decals and prepping the frame now, so hoping to do that this weekend.

Want to keep the tange sticker. Anyone know the best way to re-apply it?
