I must admit I do like the pictures of opening the boxes and showing the stuff as it emerges. I call it the "pleasureofrecievingaparcelsyndrome".

I'll start doing that too I think. We shall start a thread...

That will look so nice Al with lots of red ano stuff BTW.

:D :D :D :D :D 8) 8) 8) :D :D

gee,
nice collection you've got there!
not only the frames but also the parts!
did you get an hold to that French chap for the Box brake lever adjusters?
he did sell a complete set of levers just the other day on ebay.fr for 68 euro (45 GBP?)...
he is selling a complete set of brake levers again on ebay usa.
maybe drop him a mail?

good luck building this new baby!

DG, to be fair this bike not returning me much reward.
seems to be each part i have is rubbish or awkward
i'll explain
hershey v brake.....recent report of cheesy soft ali
ringle stem............purchased, red, but not the right shade
control tech stem...right shade of red, but read threads on mtbr...again cheese soft metal, danger of stripping the clamp bolts and flexy to boot.
san marco saddle....very strange deep saddle rails, requiring longer bolts for fitment
hope ti-glides......threw away the specs sheets, and struggling with spoke lengths
forks.........ain't got any, thinking of pace 99 era, but not really committed!
pic so far
