Mainly built of parts of hear and used every day. I will probably race it at Mountain Mayhem with some Judy's as well :)

I love it, I know its not period or in great condition but functionally its flawless! The Suntour components are sooo sweet, the mounts on the thumbies were pretty bashed up so I polished them up a bit :)

I know what you mean. The geometry is spot on, I hope the 80mm Judy's I have got dont upset the handling too much :)

For most of my riding in South of England its perfect, though I do need to find a 22T granny as the 26T was hitting the chain stay :(

getting anything to fit these old frames is a pain sometimes
