Just decided to throw together my ol Burgundy/Blue again !! Been hanging as a frame for a couple of years now. About time it got some use so here's the latest incarnation of thrown together bits and bobs from the parts bin !!

I love the frame so I look after it particulary well.... Hate the forks allthough I prefer them now that ive re-sprayed them black and re-built them with all new seals etc etc... Ive even bothered to fade the black out to keep the carbon at the top of the forks :D (Give me some Stratos any day !!!)

Anyways.... Thought ide show you my latest bike to trot about the roads on !! Seeing as ive had to sell my Bonty im consolling myself by having this back on the road :)
