Re: Frameset back from Paint
The bike spent a few months at Argos Racing Cycles in Bristol getting sorted. The job card included full respray and new decals from retrodecals (cheers Gil), removal of the old, bonded in BB, repaint A-ATAC stem and Bullseye cranks and fit the Chris King headset...
Re: Some NOS product and Neon Yellow
Next to arrive was a brand new set of DX M525 pedals. These were the first SPD pedals i ever owned and being known as DX they were a must for my build. My first pair of SPD's were matched with a pair of Nike Poobah boots, I wish I had kept those. :(
I’m not sure it was. I knew it was definitely a standard feature from 1992 onwards but I’m sure this was originally yellow and white so perhaps a late 1991.
I’m playing a little catchup with this build thread...there’s a repainted yellow and white al-mega in my study that I can’t wait...

Re: small parts
The little things.

With the frame, forks and stem sorted it was now time to hunt down one of my most wanted items.......a Bullseye crankset.
I don't think I've ever seen a set come up for sale and looking back over previous sales I knew they were going to be expensive if I did find a set. I placed a...
Re: Forks and Stem
Having found the frame I needed to find the forks and stem. I had some luck on the auction site having found a pair of 91 cromo blades but i really wanted the 92 ODSystem forks. I've always liked the bigger fork.
I've learnt with these builds that it's about patience...

Resurrecting this build thread. It's been over a year since I posted here but the build has continued so I plan to do a post each day over the next couple of weeks to bring you up to speed as the build ends.
