Its one step forward, two steps back with Frank this week. New forks arrived yesterday but they are shot- they have colapsed and seized solid. Not very pleased about that as i gave good money for them.
Before the retro purists hang me, remember this is a bit of fun for riding to work, shops, pub etc on. I have two wheelsets for this. first set is a pair of period ritchey vantage with amberwall IRC's on for playing down the woods etc. Second set (pictured below) are for street use. Big wide cruiser looking Halo combats with big fat DMR Moto tyres for banging through the potholes and up the curbs
Not at all period but they do look groovy!
Also got some sexy blue Nokon cables to go on and a SDG saddle with cowskin print...as i said, its all just a bit of fun.
Just waiting on a seatpost now and its finished parts wise. Now its time to strip those Manitous and see whats what...
Hope you like
