Hi guys I decided to start some work on the bike today and see the task ahead of me, it's been a while since I've got my tools on a bike and it was great (so much easier than working on cars!).
First of all I wanted to get some pictures of it with my big project (the car) as I think they are of similar age (and well, I love whoring my car out on forums too
Those hideous forks
Now down to collecting bits:
I knew that after a respray I'd need some new frame decals so I got onto ebay and found some (sadly not C16r decals)
I managed to get some X lite wheel skewers for my other bike so I'm going to transfer them over (I missed out on an X-lite Fly stem as well in red
And the colour I decided for the respray, this may cause controversy
Satin Chocolate brown....... Making it a "Chocolate Orange"
Starting to strip it down:
So I grabbed my tools and started
Coming across butchered bolts and random bolts holding brakes on
Most of which have ended up in the bin like some other things
Some things however, will be kept
Realising I didn't have a chain cracker I had to postpone the job but this is how it is so far
I'm off to a BBQ now so will probably see what I can do tomorrow
