Amazing. You've build this from scrap. Really nice job. Got u-brake pivots from your frame :oops: Where did you get new ones?
(edit) I'm sorry, should read more carefully it's metal worker job :shock: Brilliant.

That's one Xizang saved from life as a workshop stool ;) Nice job.


It wasn't a workshop stool, it was a garage rag hanger!
Indeed, that weld looks very neat and incongruous, and the build looks good too. Great work!

The matte finish is surprisingly nice on your Xizang, so used to seeing them bright and mirrorish that my first thought on bead blasting it was: "Oh no...", until I saw the result

Looking very good :)

Looking schweet Kase. IIRC, there was a right and a wrong was to cross over the straddle wire for the rear brake. I think that the loose end of the straddle in the pic needs to go under the other wire rathen than over as per teh pic, and the need for the plastic sleeving goes awayy. As I say, IIRC, it was a long time ago singe I played with one. Looking good mate- does it ride ok?
