Please, you're killing me....

Will be happy if my STS DS ends up looking half as good as that, although it won't have the cred of original components (doing a modern build).

Mine has needed a lot of tlc too. It had lived a fairly hard life and had a blown shock and a bit of slop in the pivots, in addition to the normal marks and scratches.

Managed to get a replacement NOS shock cheap, and am replacing all the bushes with BETD bearings. Expensive proposition given poor Aussies are on the receiving end of the unfavourable exchange rate.

Have managed to find someone who makes polish suitable for carbon fibre (Maxima), and have sourced NOS sticker set so it should look pretty schmick when done.

I'm a little concerned about whether its big enough for me (I'm 6.3"), so the frame could end up being for sale...

Oh dear sounds like a lot of cash coming out of your pocket but think about it this way just think how coooooooooool it's gonna look when it's done.I have a mixture of new and retro rides and i don't think anything i have or had (with the exception of the LOBO) has ever looked or felt as good as an STS :P Mind you if it is too small for you once it's done i would always be willing too give it a home for you :lol: :wink: .But i hope it all works out for you i am just dying to see it....... 8) 8) .
