Thanks Pierre, I have a used turbo on the way, It may be too worn for this build, I don't know...... we'll see when it arrives , either way it'll help me to decide once I fit it for a trial run. It will find a home on my Dave Yates if not! :D

I've picked up a nos ritchey logic comp saddle forthe old girl, there are a few on eBay at the mo! I think it'll be ideal as the turbo I have fitted is really nice, but not nos enough!! :roll: so all that's left is a rear brake cable outer and a chain....... Oh and one other thing...... I have just noticed that the cable stop that bridges the chainstays is not actually a cable stop..... The hole is the same diameter bore all of the way through! I think I need a small ferrule type affair with a hole in the bottom and a lip to stop it pulling through...... Anyone got any ideas?

Expect imminent completion!!!! I for one can't wait, it'll be like the Christmas day I always dreamed of as a bike mad eleven year old!

Thank you my good man! At least I'll know what I'm looking for, it must have had one in the first place I guess, in order to run the u brake.......

Thanks matey! Massively appreciated!

Well that is a bit fancier than I was expecting! Looks like I'll have to put a wanted ad up, not sure I fancy my chances though!
