All sounding good mate, im getting more excited at the outcome than i should i think... :oops:

Who did you decide to do the paint work in the end...? is that still to be done, or is next week FRAME delivery time...?


Yeah I just started to get a bit excited - been long enough now - lets hope it works out OK!

Next week is 'finished'. Paint is as per original down to the fluro orange with a touch of sparkle - stem is going to be Orange. Kevin is sorting the decals and they will be lacquered over......

Going to pick it up and hopefully drop off the next project(s) with him :D

Yes - there are two - the DONKIS (got the last bits I needed for it last week) and my own grail bike the '91 GT Cyclone - Kevin is looking up Dupont Imron red for me 8) but they are whole other threads...

That is going to be quite something.

I have a slightly later 853 version and it rides like a dream.

Look forward to meeting up on a ride sometime.
