Hey guys... I'm glad to introduce you my new project. After I finished my 96 Zaskar I realized that I need something new... So here it is.

I hope you will like it

Guess what

Image



I only say....
Image



Image



When I saw the bike like this, I thought... OMG... Who did that to you
Image

Image

Image



That looks much better :D
Image


Image

Image


I couldn't believe... what a great condition for a 22 year old bike
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

And this was the condition BEFORE cleaning anything...

After taking WD40 and clean the frame it looked like this :-)

Image


Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


Image


Image

Image

Image

Image

WOW... :-) Like I told you... The condition is fantastic

Image

Image


So far... I hope you like it... The next days and weeks I am sure you can trace my buildup.

That is nice - I'll have one some day...... the stem appears to be fillet brazed too?

Out of interest is the fork crown fillet brazed? I have a set of those 2x4s that came with my 91 Xizang and the crown on those is brazed - they are a different fork to the 2x4s on my Avalanche' from 91.

I'd like a red one..
