I still cannot get the Syncros Crank-o-matics off yet, tool on it's way then I might actually be able to take the cranks off.
The rest of it should have stayed on the Altitude, but hey ho the cranks are going no where ('cos they're lovely thing, better the LP's)

Of course captaincosmic can have a ride on them :)

I need a thunderbolt, but custom made BiTD to me (might be a bit hard :s)


temp either of you with these..
cosmic ?

The crackle paint (or rough Powered coat that make it look like rattle can job in pictures). How rough is it and I never knew it was used for a reason.
and is it really tougher ?

Sorry, but as lovely as those are, Ebay Germany is a "no fly zone" for me with regards to purchasing retro stuff as I can't afford to buy anything! :roll:

Ok so I have a problem.....
No rear brake hanger ?
It has a bridge but nothing else ?
Any ideas guys
Maybe the frame was a later one equipped with V brakes ?

Tempted by V's rather than having a bridge welded on so ....yes won't need the noodle it's all up in the air now and risking getting put to the back of the shed and forgotten :twisted:

Keep with it, you're almost there! Stick V's on it and don't let this small hiccup kibosh the entire build! ;)

CC… found another example of the 95 and it's hard to tell, but it looks like it MAY not have canti stop on the rear either. :?
