Cannot see that I have a build thread for this one - so I have to do it now after it's finished...

1988, original paint, just rebuilt from a black to a chrome package. More suitable I think.

I tweaked it a bit after I bought it, but stripped it down a bit to get it more original and to get more of the -88 look.

Now it has all -88 parts down to the Bullseye pulleys, Farmer John Cousins, m730 group and Mavic Oxygen M6 rims. Magura levers and WTB/CK GG headset. IRD seat post. Shimano 600 skewers.

Very nice. Hard to show the quality of the paintjob on the photos. Must be a great looking bike in real life.

I think I actually tried a couple of other seats as well without taking photos of that. When I found the Fat City seat everything made sense :)
