Don't get too excited, it isn't another to add to the flock on the site, it is Sinnerman's resto. Although I thought that Carl did a fantastic job getting it back to the standard he did, I thought it would be nice to upgrade it to XT status.
All original parts sold, leaving just F&F and stem. I do actually have all the parts, I am just having the XT/Wolber wheels built at the moment. the only departures from the spec below will be black bars and seatpost, and round rings (if anyone has a mint set of the bronze Biopace, do let me know).
Seen before, but a couple of pics of the F&F and a few of the parts collected.
p.s - I have realised that if you want a bike like this for £699 :shock: , then you need to have bought it in 1988.

Cheers....Nick

One wheel built, one to go. Put a few parts on. Still have a few issues with the pedals and the roller for the stem, but hopefully shouldn't be too much longer before it is completed.

Cheers....Nick
