I'm sure some of you will recognise this frame :)
My turn to have a build of it! :oops: :facepalm:

I am space limited at the moment, so have just been gathering parts for many builds until such a time as I can get them put together.

A few pics to start :

If you need an example for period correct build here's one. Complete with the SPD pedal inserts for wearing your street shoes.

Thanks gm.
I don't think I'll be completely period correct, but not too far out.
I have some m900 (a bit nos) and some tioga (more nos) allocated for this :) (and a xt u!)
