It is with much regret that this build is no longer. I need to can this build as I have other commitments. All the parts featured are now on the for sale thread and the frame/forks will be on e bay shortly. PM me if interested as I may sell away from E Bay.
really gutted that I will never get to finish her as I have spent lots of time/effort and money so far on the build and thanks to all those who have commented.

here are the last pics of how it was going to look :-)

My 1990 Alpinestars Cro Mega Non e stay will soon be on the bay too if interested.

I'm really sad we won't get to see you finish this Jim. You've done a cracking job so far and from the photos at least, yes your rattle can skills are great. I hope someone here picks up the frameset and does justice to it.

It is a shame that you won't be seeing this project through to it's fruition.
Great work on restoring it up the point you have.

I'll keep an eye out for the frame...

Was looking like a cracking build! By the way where did you get the bmx style chain ring from?
