We have a Paul Thomasberg Epic that came directly from Paul and the serial is PT 026.

This is excellent news as this just confirms that this frame is Cindys according to the serial numbers 8) ..

Yes It was the info on Mombat that lead me to question whether my frame maybe belonged to one of the team due to the similarities in the serial numbers (see page 2 of this thread). Wonder where frame "NO024" is? :lol:

So it's been a wee while since I updated this thread but finally got round to starting to assemble the bike this week. I've decided to just keep the frameset as it is, think it would've been a shame to lose the patina and original decals given it's history. I may get it clear-coated at some point but for now I'm keen to get it built and ridden.

The frameset came with a set of decals (by Gil I think) so have added the missing toptube decal but kept all the others as they are in reasonable condition. Just waiting on some brake levers and a 27.0mm dia. seatpost as the 26.8mm is a little loose for my liking (have tried a 27.0mm I have and it fits much better).

Fair enough mate as i too have other things getting in the way of my projects but unfortunately lifes ups n downs do tend to interrupt so are going to be waiting long for the remaining parts then and are they 100% what your after ? ..

Nah shouldn't be waiting too long for the rest of the bits, next couple of weeks and it should be done. I've pretty much got everything I was after but a pair of Ground Control's or Hardpack's would be nice to finish it off but I'll keep an eye out for them, no rush really.
