Get a chain on that thing or you'll be going nowhere!

Beautiful paint. Love the Syncros bits (how did they ever go out of business?!).

Damn nice bike. Love all the retro parts, esp. the cranks. Amazing all the people that have looked at your bike, but nobody leaves any feedback??? Keep the thread updated with your build, its looking really good so far.

Sorry that I have not updated the thread so far.

My Fat is still standing here on the floor with now all parts installed and waiting
for the time that all snow will be gone here and the sun is shining ;-)

Have only to setup the front dereilleur exactly and then I am ready for the first ride.

Will give you all more and updatend pictures then also to show more details.

And still thinking about some retro-canti-brakes in anodized black or red ... ;-)

Hi,

again a new part found and now mine: ;-)

1 set of critical racing brakes

problem is that it is not the one in red anodized what will perfectly
fit on the bike. it is a full set of purple brakes in very good condition.

What do you think ? Leave the silver IRDs or put the purple criticals on it ?

I think I will install the criticals and open my eyes for a red set of brakes. Possible
that there will be somebody who is interested in a purple one and is ready to swap.

cya

Ok guys, as promised here now the pictures of the completed and current setup:

Follow this link to the pictures: Link

I think it is not so bad with the purple brakes and the red hubs. Think this is a little bit
pointing out the beautiful red Ringl

Yes it is clear film to save frame and decals. But you only see it when you are under 30 centimeters away from frame and when sun shines directly on it.

Still waiting for a some new sticker-sets ...

Thanks for keeping us up to date.

Sturdy performer and great looking. Very nice bike.

Guess you apply that transparant protection as there is no clearcoat present? You will get rid of it and apply clearcoat after new stickerset arrives or will you keep using that transparant protection anyway?

OK guys, enclosed you will find a picture of the announced parts that arrived me today.

I will install them when I will find the time for it. Atm the weather is so bad for a ride
here and I have enough to do with university-stuff.

Will keep you up2date with pictures of the bike then.
