Hi everybody again!. I want to show you my last build.

Image

I always love this bike. I´ve made some changes as I want to get a better "racing" look.. Here are the specs:

Frame: 1991 Offroad Proflex 750
Fork: Rigid Offroad Proflex 1 1/4"
Headset: Shimano Deore XT HP-736
Shifters: Shimano Deore XT 732
Brake levers: Shimano Deore XT 733
Brakes: Shimano Deore XT 732
Rear mech: Shimano Deore XT 735
Front mech: Shimano Deore XT 735
Cranks: Shimano Deore XT 730 (I´m now waiting for black rings)
Pedals: Shimano Deore XT 735
Stem: Girvin Flexstem
Handlebar: Tioga
Seatpost: Shimano Deore XT 730
Saddle: Selle Italia Flite Titanium
Wheels: Shimano Deore XT 730/732 hubs laced to a pair of Mavic M231 Ceramic rims and DTSwiss spokes
Grips: ODI Tomac/Attack
Seat clamp: Offroad Proflex
Skewers: Shimano Deore XT 730
Tyres: IRC Racer X1
Chain: Shimano Deore HG91
Cassette: Shimano Deore XT HG90

All the parts are new or near new so the first look is really good.

I hope you all like it!

That is totally stunning.. 8) 8) 8) Awe-inspiring build. 8)

I had a massive hankering for an 'offroad' Master, BITD.

That is fresh! Great attention to detail, and Gil_m is a legend with his decals.

Stick with the Flite, I like it :)

I am in love with that 8)

My proflex is taking a little longer but it is based around the 750 frame, this really makes me want to get a wriggle on with it!

I've had the decals sat around for over 4 years now after I sent Gil the proof , hope they still stick on :? :lol:

Very nice fella

Thanks everybody. I´m glad you like it. I will probably put a pair of Ritchey tyres on it... What do you think?
