Tasty bolts arrived. Red anodised for the bottle and rack mounts with alloy black anodised washers (cost as much as the bolts!). These will match the decals. :-D 8) :D

And the decals are here too!!

Amazing quality as usual from Gil.

I could never use the Rob Warner pedals as for some reason I just don't like him. Never liked him BITD and I've seen him commenting on motocross stuff and I still can't stand him. No idea why.

Not polishing it. The standard finish was a sort of Matt or satin aluminium. I'm just going to Scotchbrite it thoroughly which brings up a bit of a shine and a very slight brushed finish at the same time. Should look good!!

I could do with it before Xmas as I'm going to be tarting everything up when I am off and my wife is working around the bank holidays. :-D

Now I KNOW you guys will like this.

It's an old school trials/trails bike yes? Well it needs low gears.

I think this NOS (I was told it was built onto a bike but never used, certainly looks NOS) Shimano HG70 7sp cassette in the very rare 14-32 flavour will do the trick. :-) 8) :D

Thanks to Mossy!
