Another finally rolls off the production line fully complete - I had it partially sorted before Xmas and rode it at Afan but it was never 'finished' to my satisfaction or as intended.
This is a late Mountain Goat Whiskeytown Racer. If the Yo Eddy and the Klein Attitude are about pleasure then the Goat is all about business.

A few more slightly naff pics here.

Just need to decide which wtr logo to go with on the TT, old or new style. The saddle I'm unsure of too. It's kind of wrong yet I like it.
