That weld on the bracket/downtube junction seems suspicious. Or is it me?


Think its you :D Looks alright to me...


My weld looks exactly the same, and it's also a 93 FS in unmolested crack free condition
Really looking forward to how you build this one, I've yet to post a thread but here's a picture

B.T.W whats the date of Manufacture on yours ?

Nick

They're only 6 weeks apart ! next year they'll both be 21

As for wheels I've gone with Ringles laced to NOS Ink Blue/XTR Blue Mavic 220's
I know the snowflake will jack alot of people off, but I like em.


Check out this link if you've not already come across it, Pete's McC's post is pure class and a great read ! 8)

They look lovely mate. I think they suit it very well. I want some Ringles for mine, can't be anything else really!

I do remember seeing that a long time ago but I will definitely read it soon. It's an amazing looking machine 8)

Thanks chaps. I hope I can do it justice.

It's going to be a long term project and I'll add bits as and when the things I want pop up - god knows when that will be!!! :?
