the frame looks in mint condition!!! :)


Almost, a scratch over the top tube where the bars have come round (no dent though) :D touched in, and some rust on the seat stay and chain stay bridge that has also been painted over. No dents dings or major paint loss.

Bought it from Prezza a few months ago as a complete bike. He didn't want to ride it and damage it so sold it instead. I thought it was a bargain (IMO) with the rebuild Judy sl's on it already!

Some pics of an almost finished bike in the garden.

It's kind of turned out to be just a slightly more modern twist on the XC MTB than the previous 2 projects.

Right, the new saddle and pedals arrived and I decided I couldn't wait for a seemingly elusive Tioga Psycho to turn up, so I fitted the Kona Sniff and Onza Dan tyres as I really want to ride this tomorrow!

Some pikachu's of the finished build :D

I sold this bike to Matt (nice guy) and its nice to see hes putting it to good use.

I do miss this bike. In particular, those Forks work great! I know cos I spent so much bloody time refurbing them and fitting some imported Kronos springs!

Well done Matt, she's looking great!

:D

Cheers Prezza! The forks do make it a very forgiving ride! I'd forgotten how much you get away with when you have front suspension compared to riding rigid! Just got to get used to the higher front end position! :D
