So, the end is near ...

Today I've assembled the seatpost (the 26.6 XT-post didn't fit, so I had to go to the next store and bought a no name alternative) and the TURBO.

I hope, some of you like the bike, though it isn't build up time-correct.

Thank's for your comments, best wishes from austria Christoph :D

Hi Ernie!

You and some other guys accomponied my project from the beginning to the end and supported me a lot. I'd like to make a compliment to all of them: "You british bastards are great...." and I came to the conclusion, that we (austrian and german) retro-freaks can take a leaf out of your book.

The next project is already waiting (maybe this is the reason I'm divorced :wink: ).

And at last a special to my friend ernie: my grandmother feels great, just look at the photo, she sent me last weekend ...

Hi Christoph,

Finished article looks good :D , and I feel I can now finally "out myself" as the one who outbid you on the 1st Cinder Cone frame back at the start of March. :oops: :wink:
Glad you finally got one, and built it up.

Cheers...Nick
