Hi guys!

Just finished my latest project. Bought it as a complete bike from a fellow at yetifan.com for some years ago. I stripped it and used all the purple bling stuff for my pro fro. My first thougt was to build it 100% period correct, but i feel that i almost got there. Anyway, it got the look that i wanted!

very nice indeed, lovely clean build 8)

It's such a nice frame that it doesn't need any bling to show it off.
