The more I look at it, the more I like it. It's just pure class. It's got 1992 XC written all over it - probably more SoCal than muddy Malverns classic - but it's definitely racy!

Waiting on cable outers and a 7401 chain which will hopefully arrive later today or tomorrow, but another quick couple of pics.

Had to take a pic of the NOS Grafton BB - thought long and hard about fitting it - but in the end it just seemed too perfect for this build, it would have been criminal not to.

took time without entering.
what a surprise, but there are always good and bad.
a shame that the hub broke, were never reliable to me to hurt me.
fingers crossed that I do not happen to me.

The bike is perfect, as you say, shows classic xc wildly.
The BB grafton, is beautiful, I also save it as gold.
It was the right choice for this bike, it could be another!

congratulations, because looked amazing
