so to the build .....

As mentioned going to be built with what I have lying around, Syncros post and bar in Black,Oury grips,Flite,as the frame is so bright, think Black is the best option, even considering throwing some blackwall tyres on :shock:
Going with XT V-brakes (shocker) but as this is going to be my main rider ,may as well have it as efficient as possible, besides I have period correct Fats to ride as when I feel the need !

The running gear is now fitted, Surly 34-18T set up, had to go with a tensioner, something I will change when I Can,just really need a Black 1" quill stem, Im waiting for one from the States as we speak, but been a while and not shown up , so looking around for another

Pics so far :

Phase 1 complete ............. 8)

Really pleased how this came together for the initial build , the black and silver look great against the Grello paintwork.

Will give it a good thrash over the weekend, but been out for a quick ride and it feels great :D

updates to follow ...
