My nos rigid MOHO frame felt very lonely for some time, so i talked to my girlfriend and she had let me have a brother for him. Yes!
When i lived in NY in mid nineties, they had yellow CXS in Sids bike shop. I used to go there often, was looking at it and wanted it soo bad!
(another small dream fulfilled :lol: )
This one is 1997 model and rare one. It has very interesting transluscent paint. When it was on ebay i thought it was anodized. Its not, but lt looks very close to it.
You can see the polished alu through the paint and it gives it the ano-like reflections, but with more depth to it.. Its cool.
I decided to go with red and silver to complement that blue.
Im building it mostly period correct around 1997 with exception of the fork which is early 2000s, but White Bros never really changed the design and that red ano fork looks SOO good with that blue frame!
(at least to me :lol: )
Some components will be changed, but on the go. i want to ride. :twisted:
let me know what do you think so far

cheers
jan
