Nice 8) ,

Q, are those brake levers off an old buggy ?, they seem to have a lock on brake mechanism.

Cheers Guys,

The brake levers are Dia-Compe Tech 77s, proper old-skool freestyle BMX levers, a bit heavy but they have a nice feel......would love a set of SS5 MKIIs :D

The whole bike was built on a tight budget, the tyres were from a local car boot sale for a quid each, the wheels were two quid....bit of a cheapskate me :oops:

Yep, original Gumbos, they swung the sale..I have a bit of a fork fetish :D

Always wanted a Guyzer singlespeed but couldn't afford it at the time, do you have any pictures?

Cheers
Stu
