Going to crack on this weekend, and get her stripped down.

Plan of attack:

Remove old decals
Change the forks to Indy SL
Replace shifters to Deore LX shifter/brake combo
Change stem to original 130mm GT ahead
Fit a new seatpost (yet to decide on make)
Fit a Turbo saddle

Yet to decide on tyres. I have a current choice of my light orange/yellow skinwall Wildgrippers or blackwall Velociraptors :?
