Absolutely tremendous! A friend had one of these, which meant I couldn’t! Love the Intense as well.

Those MRP’s are a SCORE!

Wow! This is gonna be awesome 8) My fave era and one of the few wishlist frames I haven't owned . . . yet :facepalm: Super-envious of the NOS MRP too - would love one for my Bullit.


Thanks man, yeah the MRP's seem to have shot up in price and rarity recently. I actually got this one off a Polish bicycle buy & sell site.

Small update, most parts are done now, just need to finish helitaping the frame and decide how I'm going to route the rear brake hose neatly as the frame guides are only meant for gear cables. My friend designs and makes 3D printed parts for things like this so I'll probably ask him about fitting something to the existing guides which the hose can be fixed to.




You will likely cringe at the idea but with my mk1 Chameleon I just pushed through the cable stops with a chisel. A good sharp chisel will go through the aluminium like cheese.


Thanks for the option, I suppose the stops could be really thin. I'm gonna explore other ways first as the frame is in such good condition still being unused.
