Frame was captured from Suburbanreuben. It's going off for a full restoration, which is a shame, but it's missing 2 brake stops. So it seems worthwhile giving it the once over! I have graphics from Gil_M - Excellent job! Build is going to be a full 737 groupset and Control Tech Bar/Stem/Seatpost/Flite. Ritchey Logic Forks. Wanted to avoid 'Ano bling' and stick to Black/White/Silver.

Here it is 'mocked' frame will be off to Jacksons shortly.....

Sweet. Is it going to be a standard paintjob or anything "extra" planned?

No - just white as it is - the original colour.

No! Not a big fan of the jelly bean, I like the subtle white colour it is at present!

I was wondering how this was going. You're in for a real treat once it's done. Rides beautifully, perfectly balanced!
Make sure BJ know where to put the stops,. THey managed to royally screw up my Dekerf.
I'm sure if you contact Sean Walling (who built it) at Soulcraft, he'll be able to give you paint codes etc. THere is white, and there is white.

In happier days. (Ignore the mismatched tyres)
