Glad to assist !

There are quite a few people on here who complain bikes aren't catalogue correct or have too new parts or must be dripping with XTR/Ringle/etc. The point is you can build it how you like and then if it doesn't work or you get bored with it (or get more money) you can have another go. It's half the fun of it.

There are components on there? :shock:

Congrats MTS. Once it's built, be sure to take it to your local Lotus garage for a tune-up.

Maybe this is a dumb question but is this Lotus related at all to the car company?
Thank guys.

Wow!
Fantastic bike. Liked it a lot during the old days.

Ever thought of fitting a Flite evolution?

Not a dumb question at all.

I've yet to confirm this for sure, but I believe that this project was instigated in 92, and was essentially bought by lotus (the car company) towards the end. I was supposed to speak to the designer of the frames last week, but life got in the way :facepalm:

Lotus had a range of bikes for sale in the mid 90s, most of which were via a tie-in with British Eagle.

Again, thanks for the comments guys!
