EDIT: 13/01/10 Decided to keep riding it, although on roads only for now
EDIT: 27/12/09 Dead
Since I now have a pretty decent Pro825 that's been built up now http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=50117
this one had to go down the paint treatment, as the original Ti plate finish had far gone and surface rust was getting a grip all over.
Appliance white, the whitest white I could find
Update: 28/11/09 Nearly finished! Just need a black 27.0 layback post and a Bonty Mustang front rim to build the Hope ultralight hub to.
The magic number!
Thrown together with some bits I had, but i still need front rim and hope ti hub. black 94bcd 32 to 36 T ring, black seatpost and black stem, red seatbinder and seat needs re-dying.
Got some skinwalls to go on this, originally i thought black would be better, but after seeing the amber wall on it i think the skinwalls would look great.
brakes are NOS dx with levers too.
you have to use your imagination on this.
EDIT 11/05/09 Pics with the skinwall tyres fitted
EDIT 12/08/09 Some borrowed bits of another bike to see it built up! Needs loads for it still, seat, post, stem, rim, chainring bolts....
