Thats "well used", or more likely "well unused" !

Should look much much better with a clean and change of the rusty parts.
At least the frame won't have rusted! :mrgreen:

Nice project - a Turd which will no doubt be rolled in Peachies finest fairy dust and sparkle brighter than when it left Wisconsin ..... high hopes on this one Chris - no pressure like !


A proper 90's ICON


in the meantime whats the betting you or Jnr do this with the frame..... just like Posh Mark in LGF's back garden post the Gates ride

Not sure, will measure when I start the strip down, (technically already started as the XTR brakes are going on Jim’s Marin) but yes, interested.

with a Y frame your going to get plenty of looks and with some shiny bling it'll sparkle


to coin a phase Splatterpaint had as his signature
