Photos from today....
I had planned to take a whole bunch of shots, but the kids complained that I should be riding with them! :facepalm:

Thought we’d bring the 1991 colour palette to Dalby today.... 8)

She’s didn’t look too comfortable over the bumps on a ridged but didn’t complain. :wink:

So glad I tuned back into retrobike airwaves to catch this thread, Chris.

Big congratulations to you and Miss Peachy on a really superb build. I have very little critique to give, because the whole purpose and mission of this build has been executed perfectly. The colours are just perfect and Gil's decals really compliment the whole look.

Huge props to your daughter for the saddle logos' repair! Really superb. And to you both for the cranks' restoration. (Okay, one critique would be the Deore font choice, but in a way their more modern design is in keeping with some of the other contemporary touches like the handlebars and cables, so no marks deducted from me on those - Miss P's precision application would negate any deductions even if I had applied any!) Also, the heat shrink covers are really clever. An idea I'm taking forth to my future builds.

Tyre choice for her intended riding (tomorrow, at Dalby Forest I believe) is perfect. I hope she enjoys it as much as I think she's expecting. And same to you for the camera clicking.

Really well done to you both.


Just seen this, cheers Regan :D

We knocked on Gil's window to wake him up on our way past his hut!

Well done Miss Peachy, a great thread and the finished bike looks excellent!

It is also great to see the bike out in the mud where it belongs, you and your dad should be very proud 8)

Cheers guys….
Was a little concerned regarding the crankset, as every revolution took a hit from her trainers, but a quick review after the wash down proved all good, not a scratch…..(it's all about the prep :wink: )

I passed Dalby on my way home. Looking good. But surely something missing?
