Fleabay I got mine from. Think it's about £7 for a 250ml tin.

Not sure how much elbow grease costs. Depends on time of year, enthusiasm and country of origin :-)

Hi.

I am really impressed! I don't like GT but Your looks great.

I've polished a few parts in my life and I know how laborious is it.

Only steer tube is a little too long for me and it make Zaskar like "city bike"

pozdrawiam

Tim for sorting me a fork service.
Jules for finding me an elusive set of V brake mounts for the forks.

Bontrager stem
XTR M950 hubs, Mavic X618 rims & Schwalbe CX Comp tyres
XTR M950 front & rear mech(with blingy wheels from Taiwan)

SRAM PG980 cassette
Raceface evolve XC crank set with Blackspire middle ring

Few blue finishing items from far East.

Not true retro I know. But it was never meant to be.
Merry Christmas all

Phil

Where did you get your jockey wheels from?

Lovely build, the blue highlights are really understated

Got them from Fleabay, some dude in Taiwan I believe. Sealed bearings etc. Excellent quality too, was quite impressed.
