More details to follow but this is my current project in a thrown together build..
Old Build:

July 2011 Build:

So as some of you probably know I'm a but if a sucker for Fats. Currently there's a Yo and 2 Bucks in the hoard. I decided earlier this year to basically find another Fat build. I sold up a heap of stuff I'd been saving for a rainy day including my lovely Orange Prestige and a few modern bits. Money in the PP I put out the wanted ad. Not much movement until I got a nudge from DrS that Kaiser was selling his SAB. A few phone calls and PM’s to a very nice Kaiser (thoroughly good chap BTW) later we got a deal worked out and the frame was making its way southwards from sunny Scotland to grey London.

I wasn’t 100% sure what the build was going to be really but I figured it was going to have to be pretty top notch. Planned mostly M900 and I figured I’d probably go blue/green ano.

As a bit of inspiration I remembered from back in the day a review of Clive Goslings SAB, one of the first SAB’s to land in the UK, so I tried to dig this out. Et Voila...

This was my starting point, more to come later, too sunny to be sitting infornt of my Mac.

Gone are the Mag21's. Gonna be dropping some Judy's on there. I've not really liked the Mags since I fitted them, they just aesthetically don't work for me. Ideally I think I'll try and pick up some 95 XC's

FWIW I was also going to use Judys, I'd tried a pair of yellow SL's and the cream and red XC. Both looked good.
