just bought one of these frames on ebay for £19 including some white 1998ish Manitou forks, bargain me thinks, loving what you've done with yours, plenty of food for thought for me there

To be honest for the minute it will be in the shed. I've just bought a mint '93 Kilauea and I have a '98 Eldridge Grade to be on with 1st. Lovely looking bike when it's done so the order of my projects may change ;)

mmm... tricky one that. Amber for the retro purists or a funky all-black to finish the sharp bold look of the "built my way" theme...
