i would like to tell you all that this was my bike 11 or more years ago. (i found a photo and took a digi pic of it!) i'm about 2 wekks away from gettin her back to how this is and i'd just like to say i'm very happy about it and that you're all lovely people (apart from that konamad bloke - he did me a bad deal...)

i'll have some better pics in a few weeks when she's actually buil up and i'm sorry i'm a bit dtunk right now so sorry for the rant but every time i get home, i see the frame hanging on my wall and want to see if theyes some bits i can buy so i go online.... night!

Good holy god!

The first i knew of this post was tonight.. must've been more than a tad inebriated, I don't remember a thing!

Don't know whether to edit my original post or not? It's a bit embarrassing really...

Is the tyre a Mr Dirt? That's what came on my '95 Kona. Looks like a similar profile
