Not cheap but would keep the frame original while providing significantly better braking

This is very similar to what I started out with in 1986 except I was spoilt by bullmoose bars and no chain guard. Mine ended up with a load of Suntour XCE.

Looking forward to seeing how this progresses. I have an S&G that was rescued by Chris on here, newer
parts on it with original paint and fire damage. Its a bit too big for me but I love it.

Its not for sale, but if you want it back you can when you come down to the Gates.

Just updating as you do...

Image

Frame is off to a local powder coaters I'm afraid - can't live with the state of that chainstay, and it won't clean up much.

Image

Stripping it all down it's noticable just how good the quality is of the parts fitted - for instance the single ring alloy sugino crankset which is pretty light, and nicely designed and 5 bolt holes on a clinched chainring - which I'm not sure if this was intended for bashguard or extra chainring... Never seen anything quite like that, it's "different".

Either could rebuild them now or perhaps convert them to a salt and pepper set. :lol:

Quick mock up with the cleaned up bits and wheels rebuilt with new stainless spokes I had lying around.
