Nicely done, I like the retrobike sticker on the inside of the chainstay.

That's a great frame and a nice build. I like the way you've picked up the de Kerf green with your green theme, although I have to say the grips are one green too many for me.

I've never seen a green Z2 before, was that done by de Kerf or did you have it painted and re-stickered?

And does it say on the frame what tubeset was used? I thought he used Ritchey WCS around that time, but I saw a frame believed to be a 97 Generation and the owner said it was Reynolds 725.

wow that is spanking, love the colour and the choice of components agree that black grips would be more balanced- nice work fella.
