I was like a little kid on Christmas unwrapping his presents,bubble wrap was going everywhere :) I haven't rode it yet i'm just a few more parts and going to touch up the paint around the chain stays,then it'll be ready to go out and get it caked in mud :)

Aye i know they were just done quickly on the day i got the frame,I'll sort better ones out when i've got the bike up and running to take it out and get it caked in mud on the trails round mine,this bike ain't gonna be no garage queen!! I'm busy cleaning up the parts at the minute and looking for the remaining Deore II stuff i need.

This is the best part isn't it? :-D Finding the bike of your dreams........holding it in your hands.....old memories flash back......great! ....and then....finding the last bits before finally riding your childhood dream.

One of life's really good moments. :-)

I remember Dentons used to there everytime we had a home game!

Anyone remember the bike shop in Whitley in the early 90's?
