Should be nice, was left wishing i'd gone for a more thought out co-ordinated build (Pace forks etc) instead of throwing bits at it :roll: ,
still it was my first retro build and i enjoyed riding it, did'nt learn anything though, my E3 is just as un-cordinated with a load of bits thrown at it :lol:

Good choice of build. Silver (with maybe a touch of black) is the best combo for the orange & white frames I reckon. Anything else can be just a bit too much.

Looking forward to plenty of progress pix. :D
