Maybe some of you have seen my '98 Dagger which I posted last year over on the later bikes forum:
http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... sc&start=0

I was pleased with the build, but the frame however, was always going to be too big for me :(
In a strange twist of fate, a friendly contact (cheers Nic!) on the other side of the world helped me rescue this baby 14" (?) frame from the clutches of a 12 year-old girl... Who lets face it, probably rode it harder than I'll ever dare to! :lol:

So it was a simple matter of swapping the main frames over. This time I threw caution into the wind and drilled out the cable-stops to run the Racelines. New stuff include a red Ringle rear hub (hidden), red TWP brace (thanks again to Nic 8) ) and a red Bullet Bros tensioner.

I love small frames and I love the Kamikazi look so I'm very :D :D :D

i must say that looks better than the original build by a long shot! ;)

That's the Bullet Bros chain tensioner, they work well.

Have to say that that frame is absolutely bloody gorgeous, I absolutely love it.
