Here's a few pics of my recent acquisition (unless my wife asks, in which case I'm sittin' on it for a friend). Same deal as all of my builds in so much as I'm using whatever I have in the parts bin. Not top drawer but decent and period. Feel free to critique.

Merry Christmas to all and here's hoping everybody gets the bike bling they're after.

i love the toad logo, it's so basic but so good 8)

potential dumb question, i can't decide whether it's super bright orange or whether it has a hint of pink in it, or is it just my computer screen?

Wonderful bike. How does it ride?

Selfish request, would you have any close ups of the fork dropouts?

Colour is same as Gibbs fishing lures. (not nearly as sexy now, huh). no pink just lots of bright/almost fluorescent orange.
