This is my first build and after 6/7 months shes finished.
The whole bike has been stripped from the ground up,the rear chromoly end has been stripped and re sprayed new decals/chainstay protector added too.
I bought the frame from ebay.com in november 2011,then went about gathering the parts from ebay from around the world and from people from this site(thanks to you guys for all the help and advice i have recived so far,esp when i was looking for new decals!!)
once i had the parts then it went to get put together and the wheels built and i picked it up today.
am really happy with the finished article and cant wait to get out and ride the bike i drooled over as a 13 year old!!
