Right - I guess it's time I properly introduced my new project....
Everyone meet Rouge...
Sadly my beloved Bontrager Race Lite got eaten by rust and developed several holes in the tubing. I cannot tell you how gutted I was when OH showed me
and it was my birthday too, was not amused. I had seen a GT Corrado before and had only really noticed it as I drive a red VW Corrado and I thought it would be cool to have a red Gt Corrado too, although I had never seen one for sale. The day after we discovered the rust to the Bonty this frame came up on Ebay US and I had to have it. Our credit card took some abuse and it turned up a couple of weeks later and has been living in our lounge ever since as I decided she is too precious to live in the garage with the other bikes.
I'm so chuffed with her, cannot wait to get her together.
So far I have..
Mavic rims with black LX hubs
Black LX Cantis
XT front and rear mechs
Black XT thumbies
I have tyres, seatpost, bars and stem all earmarked, just amassing funds together first!!
She isn't going to be anything spectacular but she is my first Retro build and she will be well loved and hopefully well ridden...
Now I just can't wait to get a pic of her and my 'other' corrado together...
