Very, very nice 8)

Must admit I've been thinking about sorting a white Clockwork if I ever get round to doing another project.

Phil.....that looks fantastic 8)

Certainly different from the 'well seasoned' frame that I sold you. The black and white combo + DX + amberwalls on dark ano rims is a great choice. Is that the old Syncros bars and stem re powder coated too?

If you decide on suspension forks later, I reckon a pair of Manitou 1's would look the schnutts on this.

Glad it went to a good home - I now have the Mandarin btw, I've cut the decals already - just need to pick all the bits out and put it on the application paper when I get a minute. :wink:

I let you know when they're sent.

Great job! 8) ...keep it in botm, it get's my vote!

Cheers,
boy"O"boy

It is Ben yeah, £70 for the frame, forks, bars and stem bead blasted and powder coated, which I thought was a really good price.

Although I must admit was a biatch to get the bars back through the stem without marking the powder coating, then struggled to feed the levers on, done now though mate :wink:
