that frame looks cool.

not too sure what it needs really. i'm fitting the curve brakes off my kona, i have some deore thummies for it, i have grips, need a rear tyre if anyone wants to donate a panaracer magic :lol:

from memory all i need is a seat post and a clamp for the seat tube. the rest i can find on my shed floor!

@ maxtherotty - pm on its way!!

it's all about patience... I bought my 93 specialized M2 in almost Mint for 70£ it was just missing a seatpost. Had some V-brakes up front that will be replaced soon enough... Cause a dannish company sells DX canti's for around 3£ for a complete set as a sale!!!

think it might be easier just to order from their website...

http://www.bikebuster.com/details/601104.html

theyre 5.52 english pounds. 67,80 swedish kronor. but I think the shop is in denmark. just push the language button on the website. I found my XT kit so I'm good:-)

but this is a true Bargain!!!

Those brakes are a true bargain 8)

Love the budget builds lads- amazing what you can do with not much cash. I am trying to build a Killer V now and have set myself a budget of £150- and might just make it :D

Would be a great idea for a BOTM.

You post up the bike with the cost of Build and the cost when new- would give a few of us mortals a chance to win :wink:
