i have sort of finished this. it's not specced quite as i wanted at the mo. i am still waiting for the thread to be cut on the fork steerer but in the meantime it has just been sort of in the way in the work stand so i wanted to get it into atleast a rolling chassis, then i sort of couldn't stop.
so i fitted a pair of rockshox judy forks, found a used cassette and chain and got the whole thing running.
remember this is a neo-retro build so not in any way trying to be period spec or catalogue or whatever.
i wanted an older frame that could take v brakes without the unsightly unused canti hanger and that suggested a more modern build generally hence the parts chosen, also i wanted to use parts that i wouldn't usually use, hence sram components.
being honest i expected this to ride that a bag of poop but the quick blast around the block suggests it rides pretty nicely so i'll have to make sure i give it a proper blast quite soon, and with 18 days off work starting on thursday that shouldn't be an issue!!
anyway here's some pics!
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
