See, I don't really get the polished drop-out thing. When I rode a pink one and raced the grey one before I bought the green one in 1990 none of them had polished drop-outs, they were all painted, when did it change? Mine will be painted.

I don't know the history, I just know I like it :wink: It lends the frame a more 'machined' look.

I'm quite partial to a green Funk myself! 8) Any idea why the graphics are different to mine when they're both 1990 models?

Ignore the ones in yellow on the red frame, they were home made along time ago, or are you referring to the early pics when it was it it's original green guise? If that's the case, sorry I don't know.

Looking very good Ash....I now feel guilty as mine has been sitting in the loft for a year now.

What wheels are you going for ?

Campag silver rims, Centaur hubs and original Campag QRs with Campag 8 speed cassette, SS DB spokes, all built ready to go.

Tyres, really I want another NOS white Porc to go with the one I already have, got some green Wildgrippers but not sure on them, I have a amber Smoke Dart combo I could fit, or some black wall Porcs, or amber Ground Controls, Smoke Dart I think is top of the list as the white Porc is rocking horse poo.
