Well I have a couple of builds on the go and thought I should share. Plan to have this one ready by the 6th of July for our local Doctor Bike Retro Bike Art Show....or whatever we call it!

Will get some photo's of the bike up soon that's getting the refresh treatment. But for now thought I would start from the ground or near enough up.

It's no tandem rather destined to be the work commute as well as the odd play in the mud.

NOS MT60 Hubs to play with the RM20's - took 3 years to find a set of these!

Judging by the quality of your HK build mate, I might just pull up a chair for this one.


So what year is it?

Btw you should have said you were after NOS mt60 hubs....I have few :D

Cheers Ant.

She's a 1989 AL-1 - I try to only collect 89 Fishers but am failing somewhat!

This one won't be as nice as the original HK-II as not going to touch the frame and it has a few signs of use, chips and some light rust on the forks but no cracks should end up tidy enough. I'm really looking forward to getting this one how I want it.

Good to know about the hubs I'll likely buy a set off you if for sale once I've got through this next chapter. Also looking for some VGC or better XC Pro Pedals for another ride.

Currently snowing here so I'll have to wait to get some pic's of the bike.
