Evenin' all.

Couldn't resist. I love these, and this one just seemed to feel 'right'. It was the top end of my budget and I was a bit nervous opening the box...

But thankfully its a cracker, and I (with the Pipmeister's help: viewtopic.php?f=1&p=3046923#p3046923) have identified it as a 93, rather than a later the model the seller hinted it might be. Its all good.

I only managed to get a couple of pics tonight, more to follow, hopefully with a plan.

So I'm forming a plan for this one already... although i can't promise it'll be exactly period correct it will be retro through and through.... purists may want to look away :D

In the meantime, some welds....

i guess he needed a way to disguise the dent in the top tube. there's no denying the paint job is pretty incredible.

Actually, thinking about it, the late 90s hei hei (or was it a KK?) With the painted headtube looked awesome....
