Default 1994 YO EDDY aquafade

Hi Guys,

bought a Yo Eddy Team Fat Chance 1992 Aquafade today.
I do not have any good pictures yet but when i have i will post them.
It is a frame set with colour matched RS Judy's, original paintjob,..nice condition,..
Hope to receive it next week,..

The buildup will take some because i have several other retro projects running.

Very nice Bas. Now you finally can pretend you are me. Racing

Only don't understand why it is still listed on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=160278101085

So that is not so kind/fair by the seller. Aren't you affraid the seattube is rusted trough now? Considering the sellers track record

Btw Defiant, I do not know of Judys that came original with painted crown. Unless it is prooven I am wrong I would polish the crown up.

Hi Mel,

this is the frame which used to be from Dr S (Si) , i spoke to him about the state of the frame,..and he is also the one who painted the Judy's,..
He assured me that it is een great condition and there is no rust.

i just sah that the auction ended at 500 pounds,..i have no idea how the seller is going to solve that with the ebay buyer but i had the deal and payment made yesterday, he should have withdrawn the frame from ebay at that moment.

From Retrobike I understand he has two. So you get the rusted one? (Kidding, never read one of the 2 shows rust) You know he has two?

That used to be my bike about 3 owners ago! Ha ha! Wish it was a medium...I'd still have it!
Hope you enjoy it. Great looking frame. Also, if you smell the seat tube it will wreak of Frame Saver. The guy I bought it from on ebay says he kept some in there and I added more for good measure.

Still do not know which path to go with the parts

Do not want to the "easy everybody does it" blue/green Ringle build so the wheels and seatpost will go,..
Have some Paul parts available but do not want to copy the Serotta
We will see,..

You seem to like a challenge, so I vote a White Industries/IRD build. WI crank, BB, Hubs, Derailleurs (did they make a front? If not, how about a Joe's?), Shifters and IRD Post, Bar/Stem and Brakes.

Some NOS Sun rims, a no name Chris King, Gen 1 SPDs, a Flite and some Tech Lite Levers and you're done.

Either that or full Mavic. Full Mavic would rock.

It's kind of great just the way it is though.

The rigid fork is back in,..the top foto in the last post was the current build.
Tomorrow i am going to get the restored Syncros Rev Cranks, a Black Syncros seatpost is on it's way.
Looks like it is going to be a Syncros build for now,..but only for the time being.
I have ordered a Bar/Stem combo in the Aquafade green colour with Rody from Groovy and the mechs will be camapgnolo for now,..with XT thumbies....

I think will take a long time before i find the parts i really want,..but i am not in a rush,..The Serotta took a long time aswell

absolutely beautiful, I would kill for that tioga disc

been working on my 93 YO build for a while now, but after getting laid off 2 months ago i had to let it sit. at least I can still come here to see what others are working on since mine is on hold

still need a 29.4 or 27.2 syncros post 440mm in black if anyone has an extra

nice... but the idea of taking a disc wheel to east coast type woods riding would never occur to me.
