"My car door needs repair, so I bought just a turbo"

In all seriousness, sorry to hear about the car woes. Good thing bike projects don´t go bad from stalling and can be reactivated when circumstances allow.
All the best

Thanks Dr. It shouldn't delay it too much but it's frustrating all the same.

It's been a few months since I posted about this bike. I've bought a few parts but it still has a way to go yet. I have some shifters/brake levers not shown here. The front XT M735 derailleur and M732 cantilevers seem pretty difficult to find in Australia.

Really cool project. I'm a big fan of old Cannondales. I'm interested in how this turns out.

Also, check US Ebay for the M735/732 stuff. It's all easy to find here, shipping might be your biggest expense.

Thanks krakhaus. I looked on Ebay and, you're right, the shipping is a killer. I just missed out on a set on M732 cantis locally by a few minutes last week. :(

I've got a front derailleur coming. It's an LX instead of the XT it's supposed to have but I'll use that until the correct one comes along.

Ha ha, no this one's a keeper. It's my first project bike so I will build it up and ride it.

The LX derailleur arrived yesterday and I fitted it this afternoon. Also just bought a pair of XT M730 quick release skewers for the wheels when I finally get them. I just happened to stumble across the skewers on Ebay while I was looking for something else. They were in Australia for a change too so no obscene shipping charges. :)
