Superb. It looks great in that colour. Are the decals from Gil_M or did Argos do them?

Thanks for the compliments chaps. The track ends & respray were done at Argos. I purchased the frame as is from ebay so cannot be 100% sure about the decals, they may even be from Orange.

I've not given it a proper outing as yet :oops: my last lot of days off were spent fitting a kitchen...

I will say that the quick blast around the park was promising :)

Oh yeah:- anyone know owt about the Odyssey Vapour stem? a bit of a bugger to set up (TBH I'm not sure if I have set it up correctly.) The brake cable does a whole loop around the guide wheel before dropping down to the brake...

Nice! Cheers for posting decent pictures. I'm about to get my dad to convert one of my frames. Its a bit different to the only other conversion i have seen and looking at the track ends i have bought similar to yours. Hope mine are even half as good
