Final build & pics HERE

I had a mod build P7 on a tatty 2006 frame. I bought a donor 2010 P7 for the frame with it's Reynolds 631 tubing & improved cable routing & dropouts. It was the cheapest P7 build I've ever seen but only cost me £130. It's getting most of the parts from the retired 2006 frame plus a few upgrades to make it worthy of the P7 name. The frame number is for early 2011 but is as per the 2010 catalogue with cable guides on top of top tube. In the 2011 catalogue they moved beneath the top tube.

As I bought it. Previous owner had recently had it powdercoated by Orange & had a mix of original decals.

Frames been powdercoated by Powder Shack in black pearlescent. Gone for non-original finish & decal colour plus the modern head tube badge.

Also had the 2006 Fox 32 140mm forks done in mat black. I have some 2017 Fox 120mm. Not sure which it will end up with yet.

Not a fan of coloured rotors, but love the mudguard!

Paint and decals look great. We're the decals applied first then clear coated ?
