Hi all

Here's my latest purchase......

Image

Going to replace rear mech and saddle other than that its pretty original (I think).

Pity the paint and decals are rough, thinking of respray but with al mega paintwork. I always wanted an Al-mega when I was a lad but more worried about them cracking hence I went with the Cro mega.
Any thoughts?

Yeah, get a decent DX rear mech. for it, along with a Turbo saddle, and you're sorted... :D

No harm in the al-mega paintscheme, been done on here before now and looks pretty darn good to me...8)

Cool, so that's what they look like all ready or ride! I'm deprived of that privilege right now( you know what i mean) :lol:

I hope you plan on getting plenty of miles done on it this summer!

If the stem is aluminium mega-lite, thingy, check around welds for crqacking, especially underneath. not scare monger stuff, they really did fail on a big scale. IIrc a recall was issued and all purchasers got a steel replacement.

cheers.
