Post  supraloopy on Thu Oct 20 2011, 22:04

First topic message reminder :

Hi I'm not sure if this is the place to do this but here goes. I bought my cat about a week ago and have enjoyed getting to grips with it pale
I'm going to hang on until the weather gets too bad to ride with confidence and then start the job of bringing the bike back to tip top condition :whoop:
I'll put some pics up once I have worked out how to get them off my phone confused
So keep checking and please comment if you think I'm going wrong anywhere. clink

Frame is now back home so got the wheels stripped and built the shock back up.
If the stripper don't do it how I want I'll remove the bearings and get them blasted.




I can now start building the frame up etc.. deal

I must admit it's brill watching a protect come together. I loved watching Nick rebuild Daves bike. It's an art and I love to see a perfectionist panel beater like Nick at work.

Fair play chaps, your good at what you do :-)

I think this would be a good thread to move to somewhere in the 'Pitstop' area and sticky if the original poster and mods agree??

It's also be awesome if you put in anything like the paint colour code if poss for others doing this in the future. I honestly thought the frame was powdercoated. looks awesome

The whole project is awesome matey, I hope you get everything out of this you want because with the work you're putting in you deserve it, really impressed with what you're doing.

Wish I had the room (time and patience!!) as I'd love to undertake something like this.

Keep the posts coming

Moved, I don't have access to the glue so can't make it sticky. Lets see how all the projects get on, maybe we could create a new area for Projects / rebuilds / refurbs.

Don't you think I've got involved enough then rofl2

Thanks for all your comments, I'm glad you like what I do. There will be more pics later as the forks are now painted and the shock holder is too salute

It's a labour of love as it's my bike. But as a ball park figure Around 2.5 - 3k + any parts that you want to fit. TBH It's not worth it as the bike no matter what you do to it is not going to be worth more than 4k. I am doing this because it's what I do and tbh only started off as a quick clean up. Rolling Eyes All this this including buying the bike will owe me 2.5k without labour so that gives you an idea of what's involved. If you can do it yourself it's worth it if not then buy a new bike ;0) salute

Thanks
Dave Very Happy
