not a lot to look at....just a polished frame. i'll put my phone on charge and try to get some pics up later. this alloy is hard to polish......believe me, i've polished a few! the metal is darker and granier!!

all built at last. only needed a 1" quill stem for the last 2 weeks. got an ebay bargain.....but when it turned up, the wedge was missing! just bit the bullet and bought an adapter to 1 1/8" ahead stem......jesus, i never buy anything new!!
