A rather nice karma frame from Letmetalktomark (another thank you)

jobs done:

Seatpost removed

bushes made up for rear triangle (angle grinder, best guess and tongue sticking out school kid style)

Headset fitted.

Black tip find Bombers fitted

Jobs to do include renew bolts and fittings and make sure its safe to ride.

I have some spare black LX or an almost complete mish mash of 9 speed stuff - whaddaya think?

Glad its in someones hands who can make good use of it.

Looking 8)

Wish I had had the time and space to do something with the frame, really like the idea of a cromo front alloy ended machine.

Now more pics :D

Really nice active/unobtrusive rear end on those. Steel front end a bit heavy compared to the alloy versions, but look nice being a skinnier tube. Wish I could find some Bombers at the tip!
