Default New project

Should be here soon after repair and repaint. An almost complete NOS 1989 build awaits, but I couldn't find an XT headset, don't like 1989-era grips much and won't pay the kind of money people are wanting for the pedals.

No idea Kirk, sorry! It was painted by Noah Rosen at Velocolour in Toronto and is based on a job in his gallery. I was thinking a rootbeer-y until I saw this restored Torpado.

Well whatever it is, I like it. May have to give Noah a call to find out.

In the mean time we need bigger / better pics of your bike.

Cheers,
