I've been sitting on this for several months whilst I completed my 1990 Kona Titanium. Some might remember it from a one time poster back in April 2013 and a subsequent unsold eBay auction.

I've been chatting to a few people about it and decided that, since I'm not too sure on the build, that I should get it up here for comments and perhaps some ideas.

Here's a pic of the bike as I bought it

I say find a nice black seatpost, Avocet or Turbo Saddle, get some decals made, and get it muddy. That's a great rig as is :)

Oh .... and drop that stem down :D

Yes, agree with most of the above, keep it nice and simple to not detract from the beauty of the full fillety goodness of the frame!

Would be nice to get a brodie stem though......
I do love that paintwork! 8)
