Excuse the kitchen photo, but it was cold outside last night so the wife let me do the decals in the kitchen! :lol:

So, here it is with the missing Stumpjumper decals added 8)

I have another set of 7 speed wheels currently in the Proflex, but I think they may suit this bike more. Grey/black Ritchey rims, DX hubs and currently wearing skinwall WTB Velociraptors. May try them and see what it looks like :?

Looking good Pickle. Agree with your comments about the wheels and tyres, I think it's more the tyres than the wheels though. Black stem and post with silver bars for me also, unless those are the originals :wink: .

OE bar and stem, slightly more modern post.

I have a black post on the Zaskar, so may try it on this and see how she looks. But, as you say, I may do the tyres first to see.

Update

Wheels changed for grey/black Wolber rims on DX hubs, tyres swapped for Ritchey Z-Max's and saddle changed for my favourite Vetta TT Trishock.

Took it for its maiden ride today, and its perfect.

The ultimate bike in fact.

I am therefore not planning on changing anything else, so this project is finished.
