Finished! I dont spend a lot on bikes unless I'm really serious about the build, so tongue firmly in cheek, I set about the KHS with grim determination.
a donation from a kindly old Claud Butler gave me some Grimeca sealed bearing hubs on those daft Vuelta deep section rims.
Anyway, I wonder when this last turned a wheel?
Karma frame required lots of work to make good.
Tip find wheels
Karma LX cranks from ages ago.
Tip find STX-RC 8spd shifters, regreased and refurbished
LX mech from the tip, front from RB
Tip find Bombers, still holding air from the day I found them
Bars - Pickle
Odd & sods from my parts bin
The ride? Hmmm, back ends a bit slow over the bumps but it does seem to work. Bombers are short travel and seem intact.
After totting up I cant believe the total spent: less than £20
anyway, pics for now and more to come later :
