Here's is one of the bike's I always wanted and finally I now have :)

The frame has been superbly reprayed and decaled by Boy o Boy to the extent that it looks like new. Now it's time to get building.....

Indeed it was! I wonder, is it now on it's 3rd or 4th build?

I'm thinking of going NOS DX with Ritchey finishing kit, plus a few sneaky XT or CNC upgrades.... 8)

Here's a couple more pics with a few more parts on....

I've always liked these even more so in the 80's shell suit colours but I would be constantly checking them for more cracks than the hackers library

Glad it went to a good home Mooster. 8)

Looks like a great build plan you've got for it. Hope you got all the small bits that were in the box? - I only had 3 of the metal ferrules, You'll need to get a few more to stop the cable stops pulling through.

Great job so far!

Here's my screen saver pic of how it was....


Cheers,
boy"O"boy
