Thanks for that will look at getting the kit. Am i best getting retro parts to go on frame?? What bits are best??
Find a groupset you like and stick to it,then match the bits ie s/post,stem,and bars by one company[say controltech or kore]
My torus build started life as a bit of bling with 3dv cook cranks ,an amp F4 fork and paul boosters
It looked pretty poo and everyone agreed
[they're not shy here]
Changing to xt m739 groupo and a regular fork made a massive difference to the overall look,its better for it
XT m735 is pretty retro as it goes and can be hard to get ,so that makes for a good project, tracking it all down
Buy expensive-sell cheap,its the retrobike way
No matter how you build it or what you use ,someone here wont like it or will query your choice of stem angle/seat position.
Dont be disheartened
I am worried i will get slagged off with how i build it, i am such a newbie to all this. When i had my Kona kilauea before i didn't do anything to it just rode it, so i am completely new to all this building stuff. Just want a nice looking Kona at the end of it that hasn't cost me loads to build.
