BIKE NOW FINISHED LATEST PHOTOS ARE AT BOTTOM OF PAGE 2



Here is my first project a 97 cindercone. The bike was a bit of a mess when i bought it in jan 2009.I cleaned it up, added some parts then thought strip, paint and rebuild it.Below are before and after photos. I would like to thank chris (formerly known as cjax) and guybe for parts and info/tips for this project.
I would like to thank 1st choice finishers in exeter for a fantastic job of
powder coating the frame. Will change photos when weather gets better ?. Please leave your comments and thanks for looking. :D

Cheers kirbdug

Check out the pictures in blutak's thread to see how different her Kilauea looks with the correct length of P2. Both 97 size 17s.

just looked in the archive section, the kilauea had project twos and the cinder cone had rock shox.i had rock shox when i bought the bike, but wanted project twos so went for the suspension adjusted ones.the chain stays are both level.
