Grabbed this beauty from Stew_b not so long back and its gradually coming together now. His original build was just great so I wanted to give it a rebirth in the same ilk.
I always obsessed over Amp stuff as a young aspiring 'Tim Gould' when I first saw one being hacked through the trees at the Sherwood Pines Series. Since then I was hooked but never got a bike. Amp F3's were as close as I came and they sit on my '94 Zaskar a treat. This I feel is the start of a possible Amp collection and Im trying to track down the rest of the Amp family as we speak.
For now though here it is so far, hopefully to be complete by end of November, the STS is also keeping me occupied at the mo, GT is definatly the wife to my Amp mistress! I need to date here too, not sure how old she is
I think I will try ultimatly to dress it in M900, Front mech and wheels are just so as well as the cassette I have on the way. NOS m900 Cantis and blocks are currently waiting patiently with blocks on my desk!. M952 cranks and rear mech will be a stop gap until the other parts are sourced.
Mavic 117's are tailored with a 2.1 Smoke and a 2.1 Dart, I am going to look for a 1.9 for the rear to get that truely classeic Smoke/Dart combo.
Everything is mounted on Control Tech post and stem. I found the Blue Flite recently, still undecided if that bit of blue is too much but I guess the complete build will tell. Hyperlite bars help the shiney theme continue. Clear Onza Porci's will grip it up just right!
Love that double down tube.
Ummmm, ahhhh shall I put Mongoose decals back on it, or keep it a shrine of B2 appreciation????
