:D Well here she is - finished, Until I can find a nice 1" DX headset :( .
Kestrel MXZ finished in pearlescent white and with some NOS decals, Tange switchblades (thanks to yoeddy & Elev12k) also sprayed to match and a full DX groupset, managed to dig out some old black DX hubs laced to some wolbers (off an old saracen) and a pair of michelin tyres in amber to finish it off. :arrow:
