Won this on the bay recently but wasn't sure what to do with it till I picked it up and found it had some lush purple renthal bars on it.

So purple theme it is then 8)

Already collected a bit with some more to source when funds allow. I'd forgotten someone gave me a set of purple mountain goat bar ends at last years turkey twizzler so thanks again (Can't remember who though :oops: )

The guy I got it off had done loads of touring on it so the paint is pretty knocked about which will make it a proper rider without the worry.

Couple of starter pics:

Real nice Chris. Looks a similar vintage to mine but with cooler paint! What size headset is it? What's the serial ? Assume it's prestige or prestige ultimate?

Looks really cool Chris and amazing what something as straightforward as a change of forks and putting the saddle at a sensible height can do.

that is indeed very nice and in the main I love your bikes and builds but ............... I have to say, the purple just does not do it for me. However I do confess to hating all coloured ano even bitd (even hated my own ano salsa project recently) so prob not the most objective view on here :lol:
