Start of my 2012 build thread!
Been told it may be a phase one due to the square dropouts!
Gonna take a while this one as there's a bit of work to do to the frame!
Pics of what I've collected for it so far all sourced from you guys so cheers!
Thoughts please guys.

Frame as modeled by Johnnypie! decals now removed!

hi
very cool e-stay!! if you strip it to bare, what colour are you planning for it? i used to work with a brit who had one of these back in the olde days when he lived in uk. he was amazed by this site when i showed it to him. almost had him hooked on buying a retro bike again. his wife said no. lol will be watching your build. good luck.

Nice to see its getting done TC! Here is a couple of pics for inspiration for you,

Have you considered anodizing the frame? I know they originally had some gold coloured anodized ones. Never seen one in the flesh mind!!! Would be definately cool.

I have also seen later frames (including Ozone) anodised in purple and blue!
