Finished Build - "in the man cave picture"

According to my calculations, the total build just tucks in under 9.9 Kg which is rather respectable, especially for a winter hack. Cost wise I consider it better than going out and buying a full modern...and were is the fun in that and discovering crap which isn't up to much? :wink:

cracking job! I really like how it's turned out! I've been "should I/shouldn't I" about selling mine for ages, and just when I've decided to sell, I get inspiration like that!

:lol:

Thanks chaps for the compliments. It's been a lot of thinking, selecting parts over time and deciding to go for that good karma build.

Foz, if you sell, sell to me at a nice price. Always good to have a spare ;-)

well if I do sell, it won't be cheap! There's no way I'd give mine away for next to nowt, but as with anything, if the price is right...

.....let me know if it stands idle and you want to off load it.

They do build up nice though with some more modern bits. Most parts I used are around early 2000 so you get some good weight / durable performance and retain a slightly retro look.
