Here’s my projects for 2012.
To celebrate the year of the Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics I thought I’d take on some British bikes
A Dave Lloyd CATS WISKAS and a Dave Yates DONKIS NOB
I am thinking the builds are going to be as follows:
Euro Build, Campag Groupo, Conti Tyres, Pace RC35s, USE bars/bars ends/stem. Its going to be converted to cantis on the rear as the disc mount is pig ugly IMO. This frame has been in the wars, it has a few holes in the seat stays and a fat in the head tube….. not going to be a cheap bill at Argos!! I have a plan for a paint job on this Still need to get some Mavic wishbone shifters
M900/M73X mix - with Middleburn RS3s, thumbies and m733 levers not sure about the finishing kit :? I am going to build this with the paint as is for now – it’s not that bad and the Lloyd is going to soak up a lot of money I think! When it does come to paint it will be a similar colour, and I’d love some RC30s for it. The older ones with the full 531 blades – these I will have flouro yellow (if I ever find any!)
Here’s some pics – would appreciate some of your thoughts on the builds too
