One blue

One red

The blue bike is pretty much complete, mudguards, drop bars with 600 series 8spd STi, Deore hubs, slicks and a home made 'compact' double, 34/48. It rides beautifully on tarmac yet handles canal banks with no problem. I think that's a sign of breeding . . .

A work in progress, the red bike is being built with mostly STX-RC of the correct period. V-brakes are vintage 1995 as is most of the rest of group. Tyrees will be Smoke and Dart folding. Kalloy seatpost, bars and stem. Separate RapidFire and the correct brake levers and it will be topped off with BBB leather grips and a Charge Spoon saddle, both in brown.

OK so it's a bit of a pose but if you've got it, flaunt it. I say.

Nice looking bikes those. I like what you've done with the blue one.
Any idea what year either of them are?

Mid 90s, 95 or 6, I think. Does anyone have a guide to frame numbers and how to decode them? I could find out exactly, then.

I believe they were bought as a pair originally as I got them from the original owner. The red one was a frameset whereas the blue was frame only, the original fork being MIA. I now have a black Cro-Mo for to replace the gaspipe that's in the pics.
