not the prettiest, definetly not the lightest but still quirckie in its own right, shirley a candidate for a second..........or 15th chance

parts bin raided, some bargains from here and ebay and some karma'd grips and shifters which i am truely appreciative of and ist compete. everythings been stripped, cleaned, refirbed or repaired and at mo appears to work. The suntour freehub needs using to loosen it of a bit, brakes want tweeking and the gears may want tightening after a ride or so.
