Nice one Steve. Looks great. Where did you find the anodized brake cable hangers? Looking for red ones myself.

The combination of the anodized parts mixed up with the butterscotch Michelins gave it such a 'bright' appearance!
Very, very nice Steve!

Thanks fella,

I know not many people like the coloured tyres but they do make all the purple stand out. And I tried the tie them in to colour of the decals..

Today, I spent a bit of time fettling with the Zaskar...

Cut the fork steerer, and added some shims, for a better fit and look

Set the brakes up for better stopping power

Image


Added a shim for the seat-post (in ano blue to tie-in with the granny bolts and 'Ringle lettering on the stem)

Image


And gave it a bloody good polish..

Now a few people have asked about the SpeedTec cranks, but I know nothing of them. An identical set came up for sale on ebay in Germany recently, and I bought mine from Michael, in Germany, but that's the extent of my knowledge on them, so here's a couple of closer pics instead... 8)

Still no sign of the bloody chain, I'm so itching to go for a spin on this, it's unreal.. :twisted:
