will see how it fits me first, as sannies are one size fits all frame wise, so you have to swap around stems to get the right comfort on the reach side of things.

still waiting on my chain to arrive, and BB tool to fit the BB then get the crank/pedals on.

once they are here those will be going on, different forks are on there way too, then just the gears to sort out.

need to cut down the seatpost with proper pipe cutters, and trim the cage bolts down, then its ready for a ride 8)

when gil comes back to the UK i will see about getting some old style frame decals made up too.

stems tend to take up 50mm of the steerer, i have just 30mm to play with thats without spacers.......not good enough :(

almost rideable now........waiting on chain then gears to wire up.

trim the seatpost down.

plus the forks are being changed to ones that have a longer steerer.

Excellent pair of bikes those :)

Think I prefer bumblebee, but look forward to seeing how the 'sensible' one turns out.
