One day maybe you will find the matching STRATA and you will go to bike heaven.....
You must be
all day anyway owning this masterpiece.
Time to build it up Tinker Style!!
I would have loved the Strata fork in it but I think it would not be "right" to change to fork since this seems to be original one. Matching paint Strata is 99% impossible to find but of course one could use a another colour one and paint it to match.
Tinker theme is already progressing.
Already have bought/swapped/whatever cranks, brakes, levers, shifter perches, front hub, rims, skewers, seat, pedals...
I'm in need of purple onZa barends, clear ATI grips, Sachs chain, purple Ringle rear hub and Tioga Psycho tyres (unless I use Klein DeathGrips).
I first regretted paying so much for it but now...no regrets at all. I only regret that I didn't get that Storm with Strata that was sold for $1500 on eBay last summer.
And yeah, I'm having a continuous wood for owning this one. Not that my wife complains though.
