the chrome and graphics are both original, but considering its 3 and a half decades old, its survived really well!

Where one project became two! I figure i may as well make the most of what spare time I’ve got and build both bikes at once, although the zaskar probably takes priority to be fair 8)

The forks are original and came with the frame, but the seatpost is new.

As much as id like everything to be original/ 80s correct, my budget wont allow it, so starting off some repop with a diacompe seatclamp...

the chainring and spider are sugino and the arm is takagi, all are genuine 80s parts. i was going to repaint the arms, but i decided that i really like the wear and that it shows its 35 years
