Got the lower fork legs back from Argos in Bristol last week, and now have a shinny set of MK1 Judy’s.
To add something a little different to the front end I had Argos stencil in the “Orange X1” logo using a different shade of gold before they applied the Lacquer, I’m happy with the result but think I should have gone bigger…
I'm not one to shy away from making a decision, but I’ve yet to decide whether to stick with the modern black DT rims or replace them with a pair of Mavic 517 Sunsets laced up with silver spokes. (hence why I’ve yet to fit the cassette and chain)
Don’t want to get to precious about being period correct as this is a bike to be ridden… but I’m so torn as Sunsets look cool, but I do like the Black DT rims
The newly acquired Onza H.O.X’s and Orange ferrules complement the build and add to the citrus flavor ! (Love or hate Ebay but it has its uses)
I've posted below are a few pictures of the build, that’s if you can see the bike for the grass (which seems to be growing faster than bamboo at the moment due to the rain and a little help from Miracle grow) The rear end is a lot darker shade of Mango/Orange than the pictures alludes to, as the sun light was reflecting off metallic silver flake in the paint.
I’ve borrowed a set of wheels from another bike for a sneaky ride, but looking forward to slinging a leg over it for real very soon.
