Cheers Pickle, no new decals, or at least not at the mo, this is going to be a rider for sure, I quite like the battle scars. If I was going to do the decals then i would want to do the paint, and if i was going to do the paint then i would want to do some repairs to the frame etc etc etc.

Look out for another post of mine coming soon if you want to see all that ;)

Hmm, maybe your right about the 'used' look. I considered it for a bit when I built the LTS, but my vanity got the better of me!

It was a bit of a tough decision, but now I've got another project which will doesn't need any repairs, will have a new paint job, and plenty of polish, I can leave this one well alone. Vanity never was one of my vices ;)

Brusque, that is very nice, a 1994, just one model year before mine. I was looking at one in the US but it went before I got to it, i do like the yellow decals on the red.

Scant, yes this is the one I bought from you :oops: Has it really been that long?!

Ok, so I have just been out and fitted the stem and bars, levers, shifters, BB, cranks, front mech, Ti bottle cage bolts and ribcage, seat QR, USE Ti post and Ti Flite, phew!

Pic's to follow soon. I am trying to keep some form of photo diary in my gallery too

In my experience the battle scars tend not to stand out as much once the frame is all built up.
