Other than a '92 Saracen that I stopped using before it became retro!

Very nice - looks very period correct. Have you built it from bits or have you always owned it?

I acquired it this year from a roadie friend, who bought it new in '95 - minus forks and a couple of odds and sods. It hasn't been rideable until today - a couple of laps of the garden so far. It's still on it's original chain and brake blocks! Although it is very original, it has been neglected by his son who used it for a few months recently, left it outside for some of the time - the seat post was solid in the frame. I got it free eventually using lots of penetrating oil, and a hot air gun!!

Sorry, didn't mean to blaspheme - alot of Project 2 forks were originally black from the factory - mine were. Just think the overall effect would be more striking with black forks. For a forum with where we're all riders there's alot of discussions about aesthetics on here :lol: .

Bronze P2s look great... Shouldn't have anything else on a 95 IMO. 8)

Now you need to hunt down a 95 Velocity stem to match...
