I have got myself the frame of my dreams.
Ever since I started mountain biking I´ve wanted a Bontrager Race/Race Lite and last summer I got my chance!
Going thru a site I hadn´t been to for a while, suddenly THE frame was for sale.
I´m not an impulsive buyer by a long shot, but I threw a mail on the spot!!
The deal was done pretty fast and all of a sudden I was a paypaler
Another cool thing was I bought from the original owner!
As I didn´t have a lot of parts the project rested over the fall/winter. Falling off my other Bonty, and rather badly, didn´t help either
Now I´m starting to get parts from all over the place and all is coming together rather nicely.
I´ll update this as bits come in and put together.
