Looks great! Blue with silver is very nice combination


Thanks :)

Yeah I hope it won't be an overload of silver but I'll have black forks and with the tyres etc there should be enough to break it up.

Will get some more photos up soon!

It will look classy. Dont worry. I recently also entered the FAT club, but my build goes very slow. Looking forward to to see yours finished!

It looks really sleek with that blue and i don't think their will be to much silver but if it does seem to much then you could always fit a blue riser bar ..

Been getting a few extra bits onto the bike, fitted the headset, forks, stem (went a bit spacer mad, need to sort out how that looks), mech etc.

Getting there! Still more to do but it's on the way. Oh, and I need some new hubs and ideally new rims but they'll do until I get paid at least!

Thanks for all the comments so far! Nearly finished now, need to fit the brakes, cables and a couple of tweaks. Namely some new seatpost decals!

This is where it's up to now...

mmmmh a very nice Buck Shaver. Especially this blue metallic paint has become really good. Along with the silver parts invites you to ride the bike properly. The original sticker harmonize very well with the blue paint. In general, the Buck Shaver framework are due to your geometry, very great framework. Due to the shorter top tube a bit more comfortable to drive than the Yo Eddy. Am looking forward to your first ride.

regards Helmut
