got some bits on it now!! :D

faced the b/b and headset and thread tapped all the threads, might aswel do a good job!

fitted some headset reducers so it's 1 1/8 now, bolted in a basic steel fork coz i had it lying around and fitted an old set of ritchey cranks i found ages ago, repainted silver(they were in horrible shape)

basic kalloy ritchey copy seatpost and a silver bolt up clamp,the headset is a basic vp/cane creek ball bearing one but good quality, the stem is one off the massive pile i had when i worked at GA cycles.

off to hunt for bits in the garage now! limited time though, got to go out tonight, bloody girlfriends!!!! :? :( :evil:

(only joking dear! :D )

Looking good mate.

New decals look nice (I can relate to the pain of having not quite right decals for a while :wink: )
