thought you guys might like to see what's been cluttering up our lounge for the past few weeks...
the frame is a 16" that made the journey from san francisco to sheffield a couple of months ago. its in lovely nick and has the disc tabs beautifully welded on. this is how things are looking so far...
i wanted a bling, retro-themed, but very usable build that could be my main bike (hence 2 rear mechs!). so far things seem to be going to plan.
rims should be arriving any day now so tim-just-back-dated can crack on with building the wheels with black spokes. tyres will be either magics or the black porcs... or maybe smoke and dart if theyre released any time soon!
further plans for stuff include hopefully commissioning a ti bar/stem combo from groovy (when rody works his way through his holiday emails!), either original thumbies or pauls thumbies, anodising a few bits (pauls brakes, chainrings etc) and the application of a very small, subtle original MBUK mint sauce sticker somewhere!
one thing im not 110% convinced about is the decals. my original plans were to put 94 decals on the frame as ive never been a fan of the originals. i got some repro ones from gil, and im still not totally sure if theyre a bit in your face? what do you guys reckon? the headbadge and seattube badge are original and will deffo be staying. just not sure about the big blammo KONA and KK... let me know what you guys think.
hope you like the pics!
