Ok. So awhile back, ok maybe along time ago i teased you with a photo of a Fuquay. The idea was to inspire its owner to get his arse in gear and register himself on here (he is a voyeur around here) and post the complete bike.
The plan failed. Its been built in the mean time and today i finally got pics of it. So here we go, apologies for the delay:

The spec:
Fuquay Tange Ultimate Ultrastrong frame with matching Fuquay fork
Royce Rear/King front on Mavic 517 Ceramics
Syncros alloy cranks with Middleburn Hardcote Slickshift rings
RaceFace bottom bracket
XTR front and rear mechs
Sachs Wavey shifters 8spd
Avid Tri-AlignIII brakes
XTR brake levers
Easton EA70 bars
Syncros Ti seatpost (originally mine, but it was spare so i swapped him it for something)
Campag Chorus headset
Custom stem to match frame
Flite saddle
SBC Dirt Rodz bar ends
Onza Porcs

There's more of it HERE or if you want bigger pics.

Its now about 14 years old. It was originally blue (don't know if i've got pics) then white (below), then red (should have pics somewhere). Then the seattube split around the expansion eyelett for the clamp. Its had a new Tange seat tube fitted and resprayed into its latest colour.
