I bought this frame and forks off Pompeydave a few months ago, and I believe it was originally Ernie's frame.

With working away from home recently have not had much of a chance to get much done, anyway had a bit of a free day today, so Heli taped it, got the cranks, deraileurs and brakes/shifters on......so hopefully get it cabled up over the next few days ready for a spin at the weekend.

So a few pics.

That looks like 1992 Lavadome Purple.

Nice colour choice by Ernie.

I like what you have done with this, looks very clean. 8)

So managed to get it cabled up and out for a shake down ride......surprisingly sunny this afternoon considering how much rain has fallen recently.

Those park benches need repainting black to show that wonderful bike off better!
