I'm a sucker for an old Zasky, and thanks to Logic.al I now have another (my 6th in 3 yrs). Money's been tight all year so not really built anything, however this is going to be a winter training/hack bike so I can regain some fitness for next year, and not worry about riding it hard..

Classic ball burnished 94 frame with a set of Judy SL's, the rest of the bike is going to be a mish-mash of old and new parts that I can scrape together out of parts bins I have, and cheap components I can source. Would love to convert it to disc in the future, but for the time being, finances dictate a v-brake set up..

Here's a crazy insight into my chicken keeping - viewtopic.php?f=17&t=238706 naming them is a right giggle..

As for their guano, we have a compost bin and it works wonders to it.. Especially on fruit and veg.. :wink:

I have been loioking at these old frames with interest. How do you convert to disc please? Is there a specific bracket or do you have to use a generic one?

Many thanks

The adaptor for the frame is readily available on eBay or through BETD.. You will need to drill your frame tho..
