Nicely crafted titanium frame acquired from an original owner. The detailing and build of these frames is quite impressive. I'm not 100% sure of the year, but it could also be a 97.

I went for a silver/gray-biased build for the components, de-NIB'ing quite a few parts. I'll likely swap the DKG for a silver version once I find one.

The Mag-21 SL has the classic paint loss problem but I like the patina it gives to the bike.

The Magic Motorcycle crankset was a no-brainer, once-in-a-lifetime purchase. This is the second version with a low 1x serial. Beautifully detailed.

Stunning M8, But that Crank set looks awful, IMHO needs smaller set of something neater looking.

I could swap for a Coda Magic set since the triple Magic's do have a slightly odd (high) teeth count for the two big rings. Replacement chainrings are impossible to find so I've learned to accept them. I really wanted to mount them with this build though since most of my frames use press-ins and it's a crankset that isn't seen too often.

BTW ... The pedals, somewhat quirky, are borrowed from a Zip.

Just think a nice set of Toplines/Middleburn/Cooks would look so much better with a 42 or 44 big ring set up.

love everything on this build, except the crankset :? Very nicely color coordinated but IMHO those arns look a little bulky in contrast with the frame.

However it does add unique character to the bike :) Excellent job Holden!
