Lovely Stumpy you have there!
Do you happen to remember the spindle length of the bottom bracket? I just bought a set of Kooka cranks and am wondering what size of bb should I get for them...

Thanks for the praise fellas. I like it as much today as I did when I first had it built. I just changed out the seat for a new Flite Ti Flow to eliminate some numbness I get in my feet. Seems to be working well so far. I also now have a Thomson Masterpiece straight seat post. Managed to lose 175g from the new combo over the old and minus another 10g when I get my Ti seat post hardware. I have two other different Kore stems to play around with. One is a 130mm 10 degree and the other is 120mm 15 degree. Now that I'm 50+, my back does not like being laid out so flat for more than 20 miles.
It'll still keep that original look with the new parts.

I'm also going to have the back half of the rear derailleur cage machined out of aluminum this winter.

I only ride with the Master tires on special occasions to save the thread. They are in great shape for being so old. Other wise I've been using more current tires for trail riding through out the years. I still use my old Fatboy slicks for road work though.

My BB is a 73X112.5.

Cool bike! I really like that you've got the mid 90s Specialized rubber, seems to be absent in lots of Spesh builds and it really makes the bike.
