Very nice - what happened to the black Syncros bar you had on it previously?

While these Cyclones were sold as frame and fork kits with matching painted stems originally, most of us would never use a Syncros bar as GT never spec'd them and they don't even show up on Syncros 91 component group ad so I'm guessing they weren't period correct for this frame either.

@ BB I just used the Syncros for testing... It was the syncros of a mate.

I thought a project was something that needed work. That bike looks outstanding as is. Congratulations on a very nice find.

This cyclone was in a very good condition. Nearly NOS. And I had a lot of luck in finding the parts that I needed.

The only thing what I'm thinking about is the saddle... how do you guys think about this one.

Depends if you intend to ride it...!

Possibly more correct, but my arse never got on with those Viscounts back in the day, and they weren't very durable.

I'm also not entirely convinced by the Flite though - could you stomach a Turbo maybe...? With yellow lettering rather than white...?

I love it, it just pops!

I have to say though, what I love most of all is that bidon cage. Do you have any ideas on brand?
