Top work have a bacon butty you earned it.

Well, certainly puts my rattle can '92 BV to shame. This is attention to detail of the very highest order - incredible - except for that sticky-out seatpost shim. Sorry, had to say it., feeling bad already. Also, I know it's hidden away but the bike deserves a UN72 bb at least!
Looking fwd to seeing your Airborne project (I've got a 2002/3 Lancaster.)

now I have read the 29 pages for the first time and I must say, hats off mate :wink:
It's amazing, starting it in 2008 and end in 2011 :shock::shock: (during this time I have built more than 10 bikes)
Rarely seen such a build project, with attention to detail. Great work mate :wink::wink::wink: ...lot of fun with it.

can i ask where you got the OE marin stickers from?


From the importer BITD - We (dad had a palisades) moaned that they fell off (the first batch did) so they sent us replacements. Dads bike got stolen and I decided I liked mine 'stealth' so the decal sets lived in a envelope for about 20 years :lol:

Other than what I stuck on my toolbox, I still have most of a neon yellow set :D

WD :D


Found a picture in Photobucket of the OE decals, it might be in this thread somewhere but I wasn't going to go and check :lol:

I've gotta say, This has been my favorite build so far. I have enjoyed this thoroughly and use this to inspire a project of my own. I have been out of commission for a while but hope this project of mine will bring me back. A blast to read. Start to finish. :)

Hopefully I've got the patience to a job half as good as this on my L2B bike once all the bits come.

Scientifically proven to be the easiest bike to wheelie known to man

This BV is the best bike on here IMO. The attention to detail, the oh so subtle customisation, the finish, it just takes things to a whole new level

Congratulations on such an acheivement!
