Well it's all done and ready to use for the rest of the Summer, although mostly for commuting duties.
The much awaited 300LX mech is on and shifting superbly, yeah I know it's crap but it's original spec and is only going to sit in the parts bin forever.
Brakes have been swapped for black STX jobbies (thanks to Mossy), the silver were fine but I think they sort of got lost against the frame patina.
New seatpost (Mossy again) and flite so the borrowed one can go back on my Ascent. Not sure whether the flite will stop, I know loads on here swear by them but so far it 'urts me bum.
Grips from the spares bin and I think that's it, finished.
Here's some photos that aren't from my back garden for once, I've made a bit of an effort and rode her down the cut (round here that's what we call the canal
). I would have got some nicer pics by some local barges but there were too many yobs about and I couldn't have taken the heckling. Even the old p*sshead on the bridge with his 3 litre bottle of cider was looking at me a bit funny
