I like the powdercoat color on the canti's; goes with the bike's paint job well. Did you have the frame and fork painted? Looks to be in great condition for the year.


All Original, The frame and forks are in really good condition, It has a couple of chips to the paint but overall its in fantastic condition. The blue for the canti's was a guess from a colour chart which has turned out to be a perfect match for the blue splatters 8)


very nice :)

Looks awesome mate- those brakes are so cool-

I am currently making enquiries with the original owner with regards to getting the original saddle for you(black Avocet with Yellow writing) I will keep you updated...

& if you got the sadlle I reckon a black Ringle post with the yellow writing would look the absolute bolx

Proper job anyway looks absolutely splendid as is-

I am so pleased with it and cant wait to go for a spin, it would be great to reunite the saddle :lol:

Im glad the brakes have gone down so well here, I was expecting some mixed comments. They cost me a tenner and took 5 days to do, well worth it as they were pretty ruff before treatment.

Thanks for your comments 8)

Very nice. The m900 gear really sets it of. Great attention to detail also.

Superb, it's does looked even better than I last saw it, the paintwork on frame is fantastic too given the age of the bike.

All ready for the FOD next week and I am looking forward to it, catch you later.
