As you said, coming along. Nicely, may I add!

That rear cable guide is the right way round though :?


Yeah ... Figured out I'm missing the bushing and it probably needs a longer bit of housing.

Not long now. Just a few little things and I can try it out.

Just waiting on a chain.

Answer decals on and new hyperlite to match.

Quick shot. The pedals and some other bits arrived from Ottawa. Added a hyperlite bar and had the post and stem redone by Quy - decals by Gil.

I ordered a set of pink toe straps so they should be here soon. It's going in today for at once over a Bisegal.

I'm not a garage queen hater (or rider hater) so I don't blame you for not wanting to scuff up the DX. It's so pretty. M2s soon?

It's apparently ready to go at Bisegal so I can grab it tomorrow. Temps rose nearly 15 degrees this week so everything is just mud city :(

You can always fly over and take her for a rip :lol:

I know, I know, and thanks - your FD helped scratch a niggling little itch with the chip on my one! I'm getting them ready but won't fit them (the M2) until the summer - after Mayhem (where I'll take it to display) but before Iconoclassic. I'm relieved to have it finished so just want to enjoy looking at it a while before another change. ;)

Well I look forward to the pics of it out on the trails, hope the temps keep rising for ya to a comfortable ambient :)

Well I haven't planned a summer holiday yet :P

We've got a little ride group forming over here. I think I can outfit a few vacationing Brits for a retro ride - I have enough bikes ;)

Its sorta like the motorcycle/sport-bike crowd, where there's always the few who are on $50,000.00 ultra-exotic/blinged out track machines; are dressed in $10k worth of Italian riding gear and leathers ... yet only ride a few blocks, to then go park and sit in front of a Starbucks all afternoon, and 'look fast' (an art otherwise known as 'posing').
