Sorry for the modern content but this is my first brand new ride since 1987!!
Decided to buy something more up to date for belting about the trail centres. Build is burly with a capital B. I just want something to hammer and sling back in the shed.

Almost ready- just need a front brake lever and a longer hose.

Sorry about crappy picture quality- camera bought it in the flood :?

I like On-One frames, good value for the cash.

Retro bikes are great, but it is nice to have a 'modern' to thrash round on occasionally :)

Say thats a nice bike. I have a burning question though. Is that a Rover SD1 in the background?

Nice bike. :D

I'd refit some of those chain links though... looks a bit tight?
