So today, the final piece of the jigsaw arrived - Ritchey MegaBite 2.1's in the obligatory amberwall, exactly as it would've left the showroom.

So in the scorching heat of today, on they went, and they've rounded the bike off nicely.

If I'm being completely pedantic, I'd want a mintier saddle, but for the time being at least it has it's original, even if it's not in the condition I'd want... :roll: :lol:

Looks great steve - the tyres make it IMO.

You can still get those Tioga seat posts NOS for reasonable money - keep you eye on eBay US.

Cheers chaps, I'm really happy with how it's turned out, especially as it was just one of those impulse purchase type things...

That's another one for me to bring to Mayhem this year, I think.. 8)
