Just thought I would add a couple more pics of my never ending project for anyone that may be interested in my 91 cinder cone.

Still trying to source a NOS Kalloy seat post (26.4mm) and then powder coat forks, replace front wheel (or both!) and get it all sorted and reconstructed ready to ride.

Things that are new:

Cantis have been replace with XT V-brakes
Dia-comp levers (pitted to hell) have been replace also with XT levers.
All cables replaced.
Spoon seat to replace the battered original Avocet Racing (which took a pounding when trying to free the stem of when I started the project.
New wellgo pedals (very similar look to originals).

Hope its not upset the true retro dudes but hopefully this will mean I use it again (FINALLY)

let me know your thoughts or any suggestions on other mods or original parts available.

Like it I'm a fan of old and new mixed builds means you get reliability but with cool looks! My breezer is the same idea.

Old... New... Sod the purists!
Love it... Loads.

Running V's, I would find a later (or earlier with internal routing) Velocity stem, to address the redundant cable routing, but that's just minor aesthetics!

Very slick
