As it seems to be Lavadome season all of a sudden :D Picked this up the other day for 40 notes, just bought it because it was there really. Complete with TB P2's, Dog Collar and Impact Headset, so not a bad deal really. Has only just been powdercoated by the previous owner, no dings dents or marks. Sadly I think I am going to have this powdercoated in Dark Chrome and fit a modern Deore G/set to it. I'll keep you posted.

Cheers...Nick

Well the donor bike of NOS parts finally turned up, and this is what I managed to retrieve from it. Going to get the frame & bars powdercoated in "Dark Chrome", and the forks & stem in gloss black. Don't know if i'm gonna bother with decals. This is gonna be my Low/Mid-range machine.

All that is left of the donor is the F&F & H/set (will use the chain & BB too as they are both new as well). Just need to source the appropriate seatpost and front mech parts wise. Next update will no doubt be a frame back from the coaters.

Cheers...Nick

Well after all the faffing with getting it p/coated, I have put it all together. Yes it a lowly LavaDome, but I got the virtually entire NOS STX groupset, NOS Deore LX/Wolber TR18/Avoriaz Tyres wheelset off a donor bike, and have added a NOS suede Velo Titanium saddle.
Just waiting on the pedals :D 8)

Cheers...Nick
