I am going to try and put a bike together for Dunkeld, might not get there but like the idea of a build up from scratch for a specific meet. There is no real rules apart from keep it light (ish) and retro (ish).

Some may want to keep it top secrect some might want to share progress reports and this is the thread to do it. Might give you the motivation to get it started and finished in time, only 2 mths away Kaiser :wink:

I started tonight with the t-cut and wax, have most of the bike already as it was for another project but I should build it anyway to make sure it fits.

updated bikes

I've bought a early 90's Alloy Claud Butler mtb frame in shocking pink, still to receive it though but its a wee bit battered so may go the strip and polish route. Less paint equals slightly less weight right ? :lol:

That's why I was t-cutting it, getting the weight down!

If anyone is on the scrounge post here, no point in buying owt if folk can get you that missing do da sorted. But suggest you don't wait till the day to fit the headset/bottom bracket/ brake cable :wink:

Will add a few bits tonight when you getting the frame velo?

Nae idea, P&P was the cheapest option but as all in cost and post was £25 I cant complain. If I get it before Christmas that'll do as I'm going to SS it to keep things simple :D

Might be the same frame but I couldn't attack the ASR with files, drills etc, that'd be murder :shock:

However with a CB I can get medeival on its ass :twisted:

Alloys easier to battle with too :D
