Hi all

Believe it or not Mrkawasaki was kind enough to gift me a Proflex 353 and as promised to him (as well as much karma) i have decided to do a public build up of the bike. I have to explain that i dont have much money, despite how hard i work but i enjoy biking and i will never stop despite this!

I would like as much help as possible so i would like to get everyones advice on this build and if you think you have a part that would sit right with this build then i would love to hear from you. Even better if you have any parts you would like to donate then they would be very well recieved also. I will listen to all advice and thoughts and will likely need some help along the way but i hope i can show you an end product worth writing great things about!

original spec - may not be correct as it says it's a 700c hybrid?

Well lets make this a retrobike credit cruncher!

I'm willing to donate the following and hopefully others RB'ers will follow suit and help too.

1 x Ritchey Forcelite bars (V.good condition)
1 x Ritchey comp bar ends (NOS)
1 x Deore LX front mech (I have a few please let me know what diameter and pull type you require)
1 x pair of STX canti's c/w pads (NOS but no wires)

If your going down the thumbshifter route i'll throw in some brake levers too.

Let me know what front mech you need and I should be able to post out to you next week some time. No charge but it will be 2nd class.

No problem at all. If you don't mind i'll post a link on the chat forum asking other members to follow M. K's lead and donate some bits. Perhaps you could post a spec sheet and fill in the missing parts as you get them. Most of us have parts knocking about that don't have a home, at least now they can be put to use.

8-speed HG cassette any good? Let me know and I will pop one in the post.

Also some clear Porcipaw grips - they were given to me by a RB'er for a favour I did, only seems right they find a home.

In fact, if you paid the postage (no more than £8 ) I could maybe do a back wheel (XT parallax with mavic something rim), not sure how long it would last off-road, but you never know...
