This is my first attempt at bike building, and putting it together for 'er indoors.
It's only going to be a cheap build, but some who like MF may like to follow, and help!
Ok got the frame, front + rear mech, cantis and forks delivered today coutesy of Gravy Monster.
Gm's already had a clean but I've gone at it with the turtle wax n anusol, err I mean autosol and given it a bit more elbow grease. i shall attempt to post some pics as I go along. Grateful for any advice. Cheers Gonzo

Ah!

There's an old saying, the family that retro together get poorer together.

Are you sure you're not going to want to keep it yourself when you're finished?

Day 2 - More polishing.

The dirty ol brakes came up quite good, could do with replacing a part/nut or 2 if anyone knows of any good supplier of shiny bits for LX cantis?
