Since I now have a pretty decent Pro825 that's been built up now http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=50117 this one had to go down the paint treatment, as the original Ti plate finish had far gone and surface rust was getting a grip all over.

Appliance white, the whitest white I could find :cool:

Update: 28/11/09 Nearly finished! Just need a black 27.0 layback post and a Bonty Mustang front rim to build the Hope ultralight hub to.

The magic number!

Thrown together with some bits I had, but i still need front rim and hope ti hub. black 94bcd 32 to 36 T ring, black seatpost and black stem, red seatbinder and seat needs re-dying.

Got some skinwalls to go on this, originally i thought black would be better, but after seeing the amber wall on it i think the skinwalls would look great.

brakes are NOS dx with levers too.

you have to use your imagination on this.

Yep, going for black decals.
The Judy DH's are on the other Parkpre, I don't think it'll look right on this build. I wanted it to be light and clean lines.

The black post n stem will make a difference, and the skinwalls.

re:

what size are yours? I've found a pro image -98 in 19" but he says that the toptube is around 55cm long, that seems a bit short for a 19"? or are they just small in the sizes? the price is okay! around 90euros and in good condition, was thinking of pollishing it

Both mine are 17"

Crud and Rekiborter have 19" frames, you should ask them.

You can also check Rekiborters website http://parkpre.com/technical.htm , i'm not sure if this table is for all the years and whether they did change the geometry later on. It all depends how the chap is measuring the top tube.

Thanks, i can't wait to finish this.

The ratio all depends on what i find! Been looking for a black 94bcd ring for a while but they are all 42+T Got a 16tooth sprocket so a 32 ring would be ideal but would take a 34, 36 or even a 38! Really don't want to run a tensioner either, might need a bit of jiggery pockery :LOL:

My ideal ring would be the AC trails ring for a direct fit to my cranks without the spyder.
