what about adding the cost of the build ?

i realise its a 2 edged sword but it might make some realise that
its not a huge investment to build a nice bike

Not quite superlight territory of 21.5lbs but everything is period correct.
Nothing on there later than 91 I think.
I have posted bike up before but I've changed a few things and
here it is finished .
Any sugestions on how to shed a few gms while keeping it period correct
would be well received. :lol:
