Hi folks,

I popped round to my folks' house today and thought i'd check out the condition of my old Popcorn Blizzard.

The bike was built up from leftover parts from my old Orange Clockwork and Cannondale Super - V, aswell as hand-me-down bits from other peoples steeds.
It's a bit of a mish-mash!
It's filthy and needs a few new parts but i'm intending to bring it back in to action soon.

My old Hope/Ambrosio snowflaked front wheel. This wheel has seen many miles on various bikes over the years. I only had to true it once! Solid as a rock!

I just thought i'd post the pics on here since it's something a bit different.
Enjoy!

loving that front wheel, I wonder is any wheelbuilders still offer that as an option?
