Well well, so it was you then, you sly dog.

I saw all the excitement, but was not in the market to play.

You'll have as many bikes as Carl soon...... no, you'll have half as many bikes as Carl soon :wink:

Not sure I ever put the Zinn Z-Classic up on the thread.

Still got to take some pictures of the Centaur and Classic together. I'll try and do it soon.

The Classic is Reynolds 501 throughout with a Sachs Classic groupset that is all original. I found the Continental Supercross tyres in Germany and had to go for the classic ODI attack grips as per the original spec. :)

The saddle isn't that high anymore, don't worry :lol:

It is British & it is steel, just not as retro as I'd like. Retro inspired however.

It's a one-off Thorn mountain bike, its Colombus Foco tubing. I havent had the transfers made for it yet since it was powder coated last year. I need to weigh it.

Me neither :lol: But it had sat in the garage for too long, with no cash to do the work required, I knew Neil wanted one and am a fan of his builds so it was 'time' to pass it on.... looking forward to seeing it done :D
