Looks great with the forks as is don't change them!
And I'm probably the only one who would use a silver groupo by the sounds of it!

I'd build it with full Deore XT with as may black parts (brakes/cranks/hubs etc) as you can find and black anno rims with some nice skinwall tyres :D


is also good idea! with black xt 730/732 hubs and panaracer or ritchey skinwalls
(but perhaps now is the time for anything else! suntour, campa or mavic)


Yeah - maybe - but it won't work as well ;)

It's gonna look great either way :D

Awesome, I like a colourful bike !

Some of these might be appropriate (tho can't think of a pink stem off hand).

i love it! very unique. the salsa stemlooks perfect on it imho, i thinks its a good match. nice to let the frame and fork do all the loud talking, and the other parts not compete with that..

I think my next job is to buy this fork a little colour, the result of PhotoShop looks promising :lol::?

and it looks even better with a black set..

by the way, I think this is the same kuwahara Gepard of 1990 (the special Alu edition)

Yes it does - I was going to offer you one but it looks like you have it covered!

Never seen a Silver XT seatpost before - were they a 'special edition' or just very rare?

Interesting to see the 'fast back' style seat stays on an auminium bike.

I think that wasn't a special edition but the silver XT is just very rare. There is no model number on it, a 730th? :?

right now I am looking for the black of this brakes :wink:
