New Dekerf project :D Plans are sketchy at the moment but I'm hoping to do the full resto myself. The extent of the repairs is still to be decided, whether to replace the chainstays and stays or patch repair and braze, I'll hopefully consult the MTBR frame forum. Anyway very excited, was considering singlespeeding but I think I'll go for a full period resto . I believe its a 94 so I'll be after parts from 94/95ish.

Anyway tell us what you think :)

Looks nice mate if a bit broken :roll:

I think it has SS written all over it, track drop outs get rid of the unnecessary guides, your not going to sell it on once repaired so why not go the whole hog? I'd xt it's ass but that's my answer to every bike :lol:

Fair bit of work to do before you start hanging any bits on.
Looking at the state of the stay and rear dropout I think I would opt for replacements. Are they into sockets on the bb ?

The broken bit is what excites me :oops: I was thinking SS but if the Kona works out and the muddy fox stays anymore then 2 singlespeeders is too far :oops: besides I'm looking to go a bit more period with my builds from now on.

Beautiful frame. In my opinion that deserves to be fully restored. :D
