So today I had some time on my hands, for the first time in ages, and I set about making a start on this build... Oh and it's my first modern build, with discs and everything, so go easy on me.. :lol: :lol:

Someone's gonna have to let me in on what year it is, but I'm guessing around 2002??

Full spec to follow, so for the time being, a teaser pic.

**UPDATE** - After email conversations with SevenCycles it is a September 2001 frame manufacture, for 2002MY 8)

Cheers fella,

I generally detest risers, so Flats will be the order of the day...

Thought I had some oversized ones, but alas, they're all 25.4 :oops: :oops: otherwise I'd have finished it off today... :(

Nah, not gonna change these tyres, I spent a forune on them a year ago, for a modern build and this is it..

I might 'ride' it on blackwalls, but we'll have to see.. :lol: :lol:
