hi
decided since i had the camera out i might as well start a build thread on this.
you might recognize it from the harald bike show thread. was brought out by roc.
since then he's decided it just wasn't his cup of tea. so i gladly took it off his hands.
this won't be a total resto project. i like it's look. i have a couple ideas on how i want it.
i need a 1" bontrager fork or at least a switchblade in chrome. anyone? :)
this may be a slow build. i hope you enjoy taking a look, there aren't many on here.
roy

When you're ready to sell it, I've been hoarding the proper fork for just such an occasion

That's sweet Roy!

Are there any Canadian builders bikes out there you still need to hunt down?
