hi all
time for a bit of an update. have picked up a few items for the brodie build. it has been decided to redo how it was originally found. no more suntour talk. :)
i now have nos deore dx hubs and araya rm-20 rims. will look into getting them built soon. will be replacing the old bottom bracket with a sealed xt unit i found in local shop. bit of an upgrade. will be the last bottom bracket this bike will ever need in my possesion. and a tange levin headset, exact nos to the one pulled from it.
that's it so far.

2 thumbs up on this! I used Toxik Harald as well, but he couldn't source the NOS decals I wanted. The ones I got were close enough, but not the real deal. Your frame looks spectacular!
