Some updates on Xizang build...
- polished the frame
- installed new repro decals + onZa stickers. Should I apply also the Shimano decals ?

Shown here is a '97 Judy but it has already ben replaced with a 1996 version.
The stem, bar & seatpost will be Syncros, drivetrain & brakes XTR M950 (even though not period correct).

Cant help but think the yellow graphics dont suit a Xizang......just not classy enough. Blue would look better IMO.


Heh Heh! I was right! Much, much better with the new decals 8)

Coming along nicely :wink:

Starting to look really good - but the Kore stem looks just a little too bulky to me - that frame needs something sleek and beatiful IMVHO :D
