Picked up a pretty beat-up frame on C-list and worked it over during the winter and spring.

Stripped it down and resprayed it, adding some new decals. After some bits here and there, I now I have a pretty fine ride.

Got lucky and found a Kinesis Maxlite fork to give it a little modern touch.

This is my first build and I learned a lot.
Any feedback and suggestions are welcomed.

thanks

Will.

I just give Ritchey a call, and lucky enough they still have some old stickers laying around. $5 a sticker.

It came with a Cro-mo fork, not sure if it's a Logic, actually I'm not even sure if it's a Ritchey fork. It was a different colour then the frame, but it's pretty light and I think it's fillet brazed, so it's a quality fork.

I just swapped it out for the kenisis. And added a WCS stem to give it a slightly more modern look. Something different for now.
I can always switch it back later.
