I'm not a fan of the colour BUT given the bike there was little other choice to be had. It's the right colour for the bike and as usual sin you've seen it done right.


Cheers mate, the colour was a bugbear for me too, but in the end..... Romance, Nostalgia, Miss Money Penny, Kurtis and Charlotte,

well it all added up to No Choice. But once its built we can see, im holding out on my judgement till then.... :?

P.s Hope the Move went well, and you are enjoying Life, and we missed you on ebay MarketPlace during the move. And its good to have you back, keep up the good work my friend.

Respect.


Heres the early 90s.

I am in overburys heaven.

I do love the iconic earlier bike but the angles and lines of the later one with the pace just looks kick ass.

Cracking job. Not that I'm a very biased bristolian 8)

Glad you like them mate.

I did have a few options for the late 80s build, but I have to admit, the idea has been shelved for a minute, other things have kinda taken over.

Ideally I need another set of m900 XTR cantilevers and M900 chainset for the 90s model really.. :oops:

Have to admitt that good m900 is beautiful but I also have a soft spot for the ritchey stuff. The logic levers and brakes on my Bigfoot perform better than any other canti I have owned. Always kind of associated ritchey logic with racing too.
