Hey LGF,

Looks to be a cool build. The CT stem looks made for that bike 8)

The powdercoaters down the road from me do a mean matt black finish that would look ace on that build.

Cheap too if it goes in with a larger batch - just means having to wait up to a week...so no great hardship!

JTfinishers are the chaps.

Can supply hobnobs and tea if you venture this way
:lol:

The previous owner/s put the bearing races in upside down (which was fun).

I like it as is. 8)

Besides, you shouldn't spend too much dough on the thing, as like all AL-1s, there's a 97.4% chance the head tube will crack. :P


spoil sport - can report its crack free though...

A buddy of mine in college had one with drop bars, neon green and pink cable housings, and white Onza Porcs.

He was cool.

I just discovered that a Mavic headset is the shmooovest thing I've ever encountered.

Is the retrobike sticker too subtle?

Yes those Mavic headsets really are ace, I also like the bolt that prevents it from loosening over time.

The black squares on the frame are a bit dodgy, I bet the bike would have looked a lot nicer without them. It's coming along nicely though, hope you can find some cash to get it powdercoated.
