A little update.....I've swapped the chainset to a 4arm version and swapped the wheels to a set with black Sun CR18 rims.

I prefer it this way :D

Now I just need to get the decals sorted and find a nicer seatpost.......

Love it Jango, so whats the plans for decals? If I had my evil way with this stunning bike i'd respray it yellow and cover it with many differing sizes of radiation trefoils. But does it need decals? Looks great already.

Well, herein lies the dilemma :roll: ........it has it's original paint/powder which although not perfect is more than presentable (note: I strongly disapprove of stripping and respraying the original finish unless it's completely knackered) and to be honest I rather like it plain, so I could clean off what's left of the original decals and leave it at that.......however, I feel I should attempt to get it close to how it should be, after all if I don't like it I can simply remove the decals!

Updates and pics to follow as and when I've had a chat with Gil_m.

Nice bike.
On the decals..... Pretty clear it's a Nuke Proof ;-)

I just got my frame-set in last week. It misses some
spares. Is there anyone who might have some bolts and
teflon bearings (all the parts to bolt the links together)

What is the exact length of the shock. 165mm seems a bit
short to me !?

I'm very curios to know how it will ride.

Cheers
Jeroen
