little update,

nearly complete, spent the evening routing the cables etc and fitting grips.

just awaiting an xt rear mech from skolioza and i can fit the chain and set it all up :D


Ive got some dx style pedals that i used previously on the mirage but wouldn't mind something a bit cooler or more period. was thinking primo tenderisers, best bmx pedal ever imho, but what would be more 1990 period? shimano dx???

opinions please........dont want modern pedals tbh and spuds are a no no as daisy will be riding it mostly with me 8)

Ok I'm just going to say it. I really admire the work and experimentation but the decal positioning is questionable and the original schema was proper nice. Ok i'm off to hide somewhere before I get flamed :-S


Huh? They're exactly the same as the original! :?

its finished for now and needs a shake down run and a spare 5 mins for some good pics, really chuffed with it and dont want to get it mucky now lol.

spec is summit like with a couple of newer parts for ease and budget. cant wait to take daisy out on it round the parks/woods etc :)

Looks great bud, love the work you've put into the paint. My 17" has paint like you started with just haven't got the nerve/skill/time to try myself :D

They are a cracking ride though.
