Well here it is ... Not really a finished bike but want to try it first without spending money on it, hence the strongarm crank etc.

Wanted to show you anyway :D

So before its pulled apart remember its just for a SS taster !! :lol:

Thats great, and I think the cranks look good to be honest.

Personally, I'd but all black tyres on and accent the blue hubs with a blue trimmed saddle......assuming you like the whole SS thing and keep the build :wink:

Very Cool.

Just needs some orange Wildslippers to finish it off. :D

Should it not be in the Pre '98 section though? :wink: :?

Looked at the pics then Pickle echoed my thoughts :D , cranks look fine, couldn't live with those tyres, and i'd stick a blue accented or plain black saddle on.

Great stuff though :wink:

Need to get the finger out with my E3 :) , cant have too many Oranges :lol:

Really?? :shock: What a coincidence! :D

Strangely. The I-Beam stem works on this but not on mazdamans. The frame colour must have something to do with it I guess?

Thanks for the comments :D

Laughed at the orange tyre content

Very rude of me actually lots of thanks to both Eds for kicking the idea off and me karma swap

Well just come in from a quick road test, nothing fell off and its quick and blooming light :D I think the gearing will be alright for now until I get used to it, took it up Stow hill and knew it at the top :shock:
