Just had a great surprise when i started to clean off the dust and 19 years of grime from this...

A recently acquired bargain :D This is the bike that started it all for me..

Anyways after a bit of rubbing and polishing i started to realise that this frameset as never seen a groupset 8)

The bottom bracket threads are perfect and havent even had a bracket in them..

It is in almost NOS/perfect condition 8)

I was going to build with DEORE DX but i may build it up as a singlespeed to use..Of course ill be putting a TIOGA T-BONE on it and if i can find them, some FARMER JOHNS COUSINS TYRES..
