Just picked this up, cheap as chips as a stablemate/supporting act to the Antaeus for Mountain Mayhem....
Last steel frame of its lineage......
This won’t be a full on build, more a removal of “wrong” saddle, tyres etc & accumulated junk. Clean up & service then off for some test runs.

Yeah, there’s a story which I will tell at MM over a few beers.... but you might have noticed my surname is Hobbs..... and I’m often asked why I don’t collect them.

Anyway, guessing the brand is easy.... the question is which one?

Can’t believe no one wants to play, not even Spud’u’like! :roll:

Anyway, took the new acquisition out on my 6k training loop and I knocked off 3 minuets! So maybe this one might be used in anger at MM, whilst the Antaeus gets the leisurely show off/reccy ride. :D

Just need to strip off some crap/plain wrong stuff and get it back to catalogue correct…. :wink:

Dawes? Carrera?

As Spud said, it's admirable that you have such a passion for one brand. But despite my guesses (just to play along!) it's surely a CB??

Hard ground and skinny tyres. 3 minutes.

I can’t get past the moment I scrolled down to that mofo big arse saddle

It’s disturbed me :shock:

Besides I’m living in a neon world at the moment and blinded by my own creation - just hit the over kill button and built the bars up


I’m all ears for the story about the fixation with CB, I’ll even save you a Duff Beer just encase I’m underwhelmed by a tenuous connect like I once went to junior school with the owners daughter Cindy Butler and she was my first love - never got to ride her (obviously) so make do these days with bike bearing the family name!

Apologies for the above I’ve just shot two coats of 2k lacquer over the Trek and feel abit fuzzy headed :? , stinks like hell but smells of Parmer Violet sweets so misses shouldn’t complain

Hopefully getting to bake tyres tomorrow as she’s out all day !

I’m down the pub with the family and have just been told to “join in the real world”. Laters
