Hey all,

Well, I am close enough to my goal, I thought I'd post the bike anyhow.

All that's left to turn this baby into an Eric Carter replica are a set of tires, derailleurs, the red Topline cranks and perhaps the seat.

I'm very happy with it now though, so here are some images. Enjoy!

Do you think it'd look cooler/more authentic with risers?

You're right, I forgot to mention the risers and grips in my list of things to get for it.

At this point, I'm totally happy with it. Last night, right after I snapped the pics, I took it out for a ride. It was the first time I've actually ridden an XXTeam in around 10 years. It was fantastic! This one's going to be ridden, the way it was meant to be ridden. :)

That bike is amazing!!! Love all the Ringle goodness. I have always wondered why there aren't more of those on the forum?? That was always one of the top classics in my opinion! Ride that bitch!!!

Cheers,

Fatty
