I posted some last night and I didn't make much progress today. The only bit that's preventing me finishing it is finding some brake levers. Once I'm done I'll put up some full shots.


Ah, page two. The blue looks amazing with the green. What levers are you looking for?

I'm hunting some Paul Component Love Levers (in blue). I've got nine pairs saved in my eBay archive but most were the wrong colour or I simply missed out in the bidding. Interestingly some of them have a different “P” logo, so I’m assuming the ones with the square surround are slightly later(?)

Even worst you got a Funk too, really fell guilty and see better the reason of the Paul Blue levers, yes the ones I sold days ago for who doesnt know here.

Your Green with the Turquoise is really great, your frame really have some different details from mine but still great ;)

Hi Nuno, Just picked this up and I'm on the case; hopefully, I'm not too late... Would you believe it I lost all patience and bought the red/blue ones from Alex on Friday with the plan to get them re-anodised!

Hi ;)

It's always goes the other way we wanted, hehehe

That is an amazing set, made me really thinking in just keeping it! :)

Any way, glad I could help and hope you get those.

Regards

Nuno

Well she's finally finished after nearly 7 months... which probably is nothing for some of the builds I’ve seen, but the last two weeks have been murder! Can’t wait to go for a ride! Anyway before I post the final photos I thought I would put this up as some of you(?) may have noticed that the drop-out on the left hand side in the photo I posted on the 16th August is grey not pink. The paint on the chainstays had become badly damaged as a result of having to be hung on the back of my mate’s car with another two bikes plus the seat post clamp developed a crack which needed to be repaired, so I painted the frame grey to match the Manitou legs. More to follow... :wink:
