What a great bike! Congratulations!
It's always nice to see someones dream come true.
What did you feel the first time you got it home......and the first time you rode it?
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
This is the best part isn't it?
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.
The best feeling in the world mkaavin.. From the day i seen that bike in the shop & seen the colour with the splatter paint & the tange prestige badge (which at the time if it had that badge you knew it was gonna be mint lol) i was fixed on that bike,I had to have it
And like you say even after 25 years it still frustrates me coz i need a couple of parts lol. My birthdays in February so i want to get it sorted by then and i'm planning on taking it to newcastleton on the borders then head over to glentress and camp there for the night and ride spooky woods then really test it out in the freeride park,should be brilliant
