Hi,

Yes, I have a frame and for now no picture, and as said before the frame needed some small repaint due to scratches due to customs inspection.
The size is a Medium and it's silver and black colour and hope soon I will get it from the painter ;)

About the Fork no, don't know about theis issues, so please can you guys give me more feedback about them?

On the Box I have more Elastometers and in good condition but is there any more issues in them?

About the Chain was one of my weight weenies friends that introduce me to this chain since he had several on some weight weenies retro builds and also with goldtech cassettes but this last one since its in aluminium I was not very interested in getting one :)

Thanks for the comments ;)

Nuno

The stanchions are super soft and the forks were infamous back in the day because they used to fail very frequently.

I knew or read that article but didn't knew or heard about those failures on the forks so thanks and I will keep a close look on them ;)


Just called the painter and tomorrow the frame is ready so can't wait to have some parts assembled ;)


The wheels won't be ready thanks to the EBay seller that didn't wanted to ship me the parts from UK :roll:
Probably my self with 300 100% feedback should be an issue!! Whatever....

This is looking good m8.

I love the mix of parts, and the chunky onza cantilevers should go well with the FUNK.

Sweet :)

The paint turned out great! Looks nice dripping with the blue and purple ano bits. 8) Personally I'd go with an all black saddle since the blue on the Flite doesn't quite match the blue ano, but I'm just being picky.
