Hi all,

Thought I'd post my latest "creation" for your respective viewing pleasure. Nothing real special but a blizzard nonetheless.

This is a 1991 that came to me recently as frame fork and cranks. believe it or not this is the "cleaned up version".

I rummaged through my meager parts bin to find enough bits n' pieces to cobble together what you see before you. Luckily, the frame paint was middle of the road so my parts just needed to be rider quality. Bar is a cut down syncros so I finally got to use my barends (imo full length bars with barends doesn't look right). frame had original head tube and seat tube decals and my boy Jimbotoad hooked me up with the nos downtube decals (no luck on the blizz decals tho).

thanks for looking and to everybody, have a great weekend.

As a matter of fact yes. Managed to find a sufficiently worn Syncros post to compliment the rest of the sufficiently worn Syncros bits.

I like it! Big fan of matching worn original finishes up rather than refurbishing and laying on NOS bits. Don't get me wrong I love a shiny fresh build too, but there's no shame in an old bike looking old.
