Progress is going fairly slow as i've been busy sourcing parts for project Wicked SS.
I am slowly collecting turquoise bits and have a green head set which i will use if i cannot find a torq blue one.
I'm(initially) building using black post,bars and cranks .The wheels shown are to be used on the wicked so if anyone has a nice set of Mavics,please get in touch.Other items im struggling to find include a blue Ringle Rear hub and Moby post

the search continues ........

Looking really good (and definitely doing justice to Rody's fantastic restoration).

Perhaps when it's done we should have a Fat ride in FoD......
