Not bad I'm certainly fitter than when I started although it may be happening next year at this rate! :oops:

There's supposed to be 4 of us doing this, one's in a band whos playing lots of gigs around the time and one of the other guys can't the time off work.

It will happen but probably not this year!

Finally found a NOS rear tyre! so I've fitted that and the NOS XTR rear mech.

Getting there!

You're entitled to your opinion bud! 8)

The graphics are very subtle so they've hardly been picked up by my camara but they're in XTR grey as are the seat clamp headset and of course the XTR.

Did you find a Hope seatclamp? If it's 31.8 I've a mint gunsmoke QR (I've been told the QRs hold better than the bolt-up, bizarrely :? ) 8)

i had totally forgotten about these frames till i saw this and it's bloody awesome! great standover clearance...looks amazing so far love the stickers...and i love the tyres...just picked some up off ebay for my brother...they sort of 'visually' lighten a bike too. my brother used to have some on his nickle P7 and they looked sublime. what saddle/bars are you looking to fit?

I've already got a Titanium flight saddle which I'm going to have recovered in cream leather with flite embroidered in red if I stick with these tyres but I've found some NOS tioga psychos in grey which I think may suit it better so then I'll get it recovered in grey leather.

As for bars go I'm looking for something high end and polished I've got some NOS clear Yeti grips ready to go on them when I find them plus a set of NOS m952 rapidfire+ if all goes well. :D
