After some rouble I got of the ancient BB. Inside there was no rust! I had expected something different of the a 25 year old bike ..

Image

New BB from China. US $30,- free Shipping. Light and good build quality.

The FC-6206 fits perfect
Image

Image

It takes shape as a propper bike now

... and this was what I started with :-)

Looks fantastic that, never heard of the brand, looks a lot like a GT , does this manufacturer have any relationship to GT ? as I thought the triple triangle thang was a GT patented design. ?

The tyres look great , is there a distributor in the uk for these ?

That is a true beauty: lovely colors, great design, slimness, character: it has it all 8) !

Tyre-wise I'd say: Timbuks up, Onzas down :) .

Thanks - I agree regarding the tyres... the onza's are winners for sure, but a bit to fat for this rig, and a bit to newish...
