great job Nevada, one of the nicer bikes I've seen in awhile.

I love the fillet brazing in the bottom bracket area. Rare to find a bike of this vintage in this condition + the proper parts to make the build just right.

I was thinking of getting some braze on's for some 180mm twin pot floating discs :wink: :lol:


Thanks for all the great comments chaps :D

Gear cables and original grab on end plugs will finish it properly :)

;) looks so smart. Have often admired it as it's gone trough peoples hands but this seems the definitive build.

Thanks :D

I had a few ideas for how to do this - I actually built it with Suntour xc9000 first, then tinkered with S/S but pretty soon it became apparent that OE equipment and reuniting the frame with some of the original parts was the right way to go :D
