loving the builds!!! Im so glad i have one of my own to do!! I noticed one of your frames has Factory Test on it, as has mine, was that a particular year or was it something special?

Very nice build - I wish someone would buy, and rebuild, a proflex (or any *quality* bike for that matter) for me :lol:

Oh, and congrats on getting the missus cycling with you. It's a feat I could never quite accomplish with my recently departed Ex.

Thx guys.. It's not like she had a choice!.. She is a good sport for sure. This bike is now for sale as i just got a near nos 14" 855 for her, which fits her better.

As far as the factory tests, they are not uncommon.. They where given to dealers to offer potential buyers test rides.. That way only one of their bikes got used and the others could stay new.. At least that's the story I heard. I don't think they where supposed to sell them.. But eventually everything gets passed around and ends up on eBay!
