Thanks Mike, yup they were on nigel to see if the yellow would work with the decals, unfortunately it didn't , along with the year of manufacture being too new really for nigel, I think they suit and work better on moo moo anyway
yeti-man thanks dude , appreciated
kermitgreenkona88 cheered me up a little , thanks man
michael franks thanks for the comments , she IS actually my favorite rider, I've travelled quite a lot with this bike over the years , its seen its fair share of action, I know its nothing fancy like the fats/kleins and suchlike, but she's a hoot to ride and dont think I'll ever sell her.
The sram mech was fairly straightforward to take apart , I took lots of step by step pictures to help with the reassemble , I'm currently just letting the paint harden (even though its been baked) then I shall reassemble and attempt a fit to moo moo, the white and black will work spot on with the current colour scheme.
Ridin like it was 1992
