Is that Signal Green or a special mix?

No mate,its Kawasaki green,theyve mixed some paint as the Kawa centre is down the road from them,they dont keep it on show so you gotta ask.

Anyway heres where i got to this afternoon,wanted to make the Bristol bike jumble but things took longer than i expected,still a few things to do like gear cables(waiting on crc) and maybe swap the forks over for Mani 1's,first 'stand-over' impression is that the bars are too narrow for me :( apart from that its way lighter than i expected.Got a bit carried away with the pics,lol :wink:

Hi Andy,

I very remember I travelled 200km to the south of Netherlands to pick it it up. The Sachs New Success turned out to be a total mess, what was a disappointment, but the frame was in decent shape and only needed a caring owner willing to restore it to its original glory. I am very happy the frame found you in the end :D

It absolutely looks great :!: I have to say you managed it quite quick too.

Thanks for the replies chaps,yes it did come together quite quick,longest bit was waiting for the frame to be painted but well worth it,the pics dont really do it justice,its a lot more lairy in the flesh.

I like creating bikes,its a karma thing for me,still a few bits to do but the main shape is there,thanks to all the people who sold me different parts for the bike. :wink:
