Erm...

Bike bought in April 2005, and been collecting everything since then really...!

Knew exactly what the build was going to be as soon as I collected it, but things became harder and harder to find and I was earning less and less - how does that work?! - so it was built for a while with modern XT bits to make it ridable until I'd amassed enough parts to make a switch and still be able to ride it.

I think it's done now save for the few things mentioned above which won't drastically alter the look - so three years in total seems about right.

I am not a Pace man myself, but have to say that you did a great job, it's different with red stuff but it looked very good, nicely done, nice one :D

Decided to strip the bike down and rebuild it as a single speed for commuting to work.


Commuting! That's insane!

Looks good though. Lot of red but I think you've pulled it off...

Thankyou mate!

I felt pretty guilty about posting pics too soon last year when it was in limbo mode - and the subsequent concern that was voiced over the lack of period correctness. Wasn't becoming of such a fine frame...

Hopefully this act of sacrilege has been redressed now...!

Ooops!

Nearly forgot!

Big big thanks to Gil-m for the dropouts!

He had some made up for himself a while back and in his wisdom thought to have a few more sets made up at the same time - one of which you see here.

Thankyou Gil and all others who have helped me source parts - too many to mention but you know who you are if you recognise bits on the build!

Cheers again.
