Sounds like its taking shape nicely.
Funnily enough the USA was the only place I could find a silver Thomson post on the right size as well.

Been a while updating this thread...

Well,I've managed to bag a near nos Rc35 mxcd fork-(thanks to ishaw :D ),so hopefully I'll get this fitted if I can find a king headset or a crown race for the dia compe fitted already.

What with the Brighton bigdog only 2 weeks away,I'm going to have to do a 'whatever I have in the garage' build til I can find the pieces that I would rather have on it.

Build wise,I'm now going with a blue,red and silver mix for the parts-(as many uk parts as I can) to keep in with the Union Jack colours. I know not everyone will like it...but....it's just how I had my F5 years ago.

Hopefully update the pics next week!

So you never finished it then? :? Pity. Mind you knowing some of the original production staff up the road. they had a plethora of warranty returns with these frames as they were extremely fragile!

The charge ti duster is soooooo much more forgiving
