Thought I'd post a few pics of this now it's getting close to where I want it.
Always thought the mid 90's HeiHei's were not really suspension corrected as they have pretty slack angles.
Running 39cm atc Pace Rc30's Looking for some nice P2's when they come along, but think they look pretty fine and it handles really well.
It's the King Kahuna version, with 6/4 back end and gusseted top and down tubes.
Haven't weighed it yet, but it's around 20 at a guess.

What's the verdict? Not sure whether the Pale blue decal centres go with the 3 DV?

Tyres make it look shonky, otherwise... 8)

I have some tb P2's that might fit but they are threaded.

Tried skinwalls, didn't look right, need some nice folding blackwalls, the early Schwalbes work a treat, but the sidewalls are a bit weird admitted.

Syncros cnc'd to match the 2 piece cnc'd cranks work really well and very light.

PM me Dave on the steerer?

Love it. Personally I like the decals in a different colour (my GT's sort of the same in that respect). Very, very 8) :)

It's all opinions but I actually think those decals suit it really well.
Big fan of the bike, prefer P2's but those forks match up quite well. Just the right amount of colour through the biks as well.
