Ok,

first post here for my P7 build thread. I bought the frame from gingernuts/badger here:

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... highlight=

Its now on its way to Argos Racing Cycles for the frame refurb. This is going to be a slow burn winter project for me and I'm going to annoy the purists here but its going to end up a neo-retro. Sorry guys but that means I will ride it, unlike my pace that I'm frightened to ride in case it gets damaged.

I will post pics when it comes back from Argos. In the mean time I'm looking for a set of RC31's in NOS or VGC, prefer the Carbon hollow-form type that were re-issued by Pace recently.....

Watch this space.

Wak

0. check pic is on your pc and in suitable format (ideally jpeg)
1. post reply
2. press "add attachment button" (below the text box, in the options bit)
3. press "browse" next to filename box
4. find the file on your computer and select "open"
5. press preview and if you are happy then with it "submit"
Here's a pic of my p7 back from Argos not so long ago.

p.s. if your pic is quite large then it may not be added as there is a limit per pic I think. Re-size in photo-editor, photoshop, paint shop, pixelmator...whatever !

Nice P7 there friend. I'm really impressed with the finish on mine. Expensive but worth the money!
