yeah and i've managed to find a betsy stars and strips rear mech to go with it, found some red grip shifters to work with it, couldnt find any betsy shifters yet. The rest is looking good, mostly silver stuff as, like you say, it doesnt need much to bling it, indeed I half think the silver is my effort to tone it down! :) I ended up with some Manitou one forks which will look good. Need some cranks, wheels, handlebar, seatpost and then I'll put it together and do a proper build thread with pics.

thanks for the help guys, much appreciated. I actually have a kalloy seatpost at that size until something nicer comes along. Old ibis and funk seemingly used the same size. Cool.

might have to shim the front mech I have for it. Still in no rush. The chase for parts is fun.
