Just managed to source a nice minty rear mech 8) I hope this one makes it's way to me safely this time ...

In the mean time a couple of shots of a few NOS bits I have picked up that will be added to the build.

XT Thumbie top caps, bagged, with screws and protective film 8) :

Lever boots :

Now I am happy with the forks they can finally wear their nice (pink :lol:) stickers :

Image

After looking around for a new cable guide and getting a nice shimano one (to find it didn't fit properly), then getting a nice  campag one (that didn't fit properly either) I ended up with the standard 007 that it came with :lol: but I rounded the end off as when I removed it it had been rubbing on a weld, removed the zolotone and started some rust :-( :

It just might be done by summer ... :oops: :lol:

WD :D

Look what the postman bought 8) after customs had taken their slice :-( :lol: (It came from the states) :

Image

This is how it arrived, it's not new, but very good condition 8) just a little scratch on the black part but I think most of it will polish out ;-)

Then it will be metal polish on the alloy and fitment of the Ti bolt and bullseye jockeys :D

It might actually be finished for spring 8) (maybe summer :lol:)

WD :D

I just read the whole thread looking for that finished picture, come on surely it's finished now? Although your attention to detail is amazing. :D

I don’t think it will get done this weekend either :oops:

Saturday morning will be spent trying to match the finish of the Marin’s Ti bits all over the frame and accessories for the Airborne - I am guessing the rest of the weekend will be family time :D

what a great building thread! Truly inspiring. Makes me want to search my partsbin just to see if there are parts that I can polish! Makes me want to start meditation excercises to grow some patience too...
