It came from Germany to me. I believe the seller has had it for a while.

A couple of crappy pics with my iPhone in poor light (my speciality!).

The paintwork isn't bad at all an although it's hard to tell from the pics it changes from blue to green depending on where the light hits it.

Weighs 1660g on my kitchen scales.

Nice! :)

Is it 1-1/8" ?

Are you set on rigid forks?

Yes 1 1/8"

I'm pretty much set on rigid as I never had bouncy forks on my bikes BITD. That said, the decals do seem to cry out for some Mag20's I guess.

Certainly happy to hear any suggestions anyway :D

hi
i'll be watching your build closely to see if i can pick up any pointers. :)
i'm putting P2's on one also. hopefully they should work fine. we can compare notes.
what else have you in mind for components? brakes and shifters? etc. brodie stem is a bonus for sure.

That is sweet, especially with the matching stem.

Can't wait to see how this brodie turns out... :)
