I had a couple of hours free, so I thought I'd put my time to good use. Usually I can get a bike up and running from a pile of parts in under 3 hours, but I'm taking my time on this one....

Anyway.....

I nearly passed out with excitement when I put it together, not too shabby is it?

That's all for now though, I'll have to keep y'all in suspense for a few weeks. :D

Cheers for the compliments! :)

Strange though, I'm surprised that nobody has noticed the mods I've had made to various things before it was sprayed.....

Spot the difference time!

Hmmm...

Cable stop & guide removed from the stem
Open "cable" guides on the top tube

Which possibly means Maguras, and not canti's...

I'm not slacking on this, it's just that I've been away from home for so long I've simply not had the time to touch it. It's sitting waiting in the stand in the garage.... :oops:

You can have another pic though!
