Lovely bike, love the paint. And really nice components especially the wheelset. Is the rear hub 130mm spacing?

Nice build.

Regarding my bike pictured above, I was incredibly lucky to find such an original example with the tyres being the only exception. It's hardly been used really.

Matt.

Retro cool at it's original best, well done. I have a pair of those Specialized cranks knocking about somewhere, what year are they from, do you know?
Cheers, Ash.

Thanks chaps.

Ash, I believe they were made from about 87 and continued production up to 92, there are two versions, cast and cold forged, with the cold forged being slightly slimmer and more sculpted (the good ones). They are a good alternative to M730s as they weigh ever so slightly less and look a bit better, imho.

I have a mild obsession with Specialized parts of this era for some reason, I like the design of the plastic clips and bottle cages, which I try to use on all my bikes (along with ODI grips and Turbo saddles).
