I bought the bike which was in a garden for years. The tyres were good, the frame and forks had hope. Everything else was rusted. Sold the tyres for what I paid for the bike so a free frame and forks. The frame doesn't look to bad in the photo, the reality was it needed some love! Stripped, rust treated, painted with spare paint from my yellow van!
Next raid the spares box. So XT rear mech, brakes and shifters, LX hubs with mavic rims, STX front mech, Deore cranks and front rings. Marin light peddles.
Rides nice. so happy bunny.

That looks great. Much better colour than original.

Thanks Ibbz. I built it for my wife's 50th birthday present. She did 21 miles on it today, so I think she likes it.
