So I now have a pair of M730 canti's in black :lol:

Now I need a pair of M732's in black :oops: Should have bid on those NOS ones on ebay last week - your buddy I think Ameybrook. My timing sucks...

So it is starting to look a little more like a bike now :D

Just waiting on a few bits and bolts to finish it but hopefully should have this nailed within the next week or so. You might also notice I managed to 'trim' a bit of height out of the headset assembly - found a 5mm headset spacer that fits a treat.

Tyres weren't as hard as I remember to fit to these rims either. Went on suprisingly easy.
