Brought this one back in Feb from Dave_H.
Inspired by Clockworkdavo's clockwork ( the one that was so nearly BOTM ) 8)
It's taken sometime to get all the parts together but I'm pleased with the end result. Just need an XT quick release for the seatclamp and I'm there.
I'll get some pics up soon with the 2 "O"s together.
Just got to decide what I'm going to do with my next "O" project now!....S/S? :D

Nah, don't like it much. How about I buy it back off you. I'll add a tenner for your trouble.

:D


Nice job - well done.

One of the nicest builds I've seen on here for a while now. Brings back lots of memories of racing BITD. Should be a BOTM contender itself 8)
