  1. So I’ve acquired a couple of frames recently and managed to get one pair of forks but still need another set. Nothing is together yet but my mate sent me a pic of a wheelset he’s completed for me aand frame I’m building. This was my childhood dream bike, and yes I’ve built one before, but this one will be an insane spec.
  2. Took delivery of this the other day and made a start on making it my style already. The colour won’t be staying, wheels may take a while with the current situation and November until rims are hopefully in stock. But will be a nice build hopefully when complete.
  3. So I’ve changed the tyres out and added some custom decals and head tube badge from Curtis and it’s so fun.
  4. I did my T1 earlier quickly mines WB 1010 CS 392 BB 10 don’t have anything to do the head angle. nice build man can I ask what forks they are?
  5. So having sold the x tort frame I’ve been given this mad frame set and like the idea of practicing on this to start so I don’t ruin a pashley. Quite a cool shape frame but need the rock guard for the frame really as I’ve not ridden in so long. Can still do some bits but not attempted much. The beginning for this build.
  6. Finally starting to ride it and it’s so much fun.
  7. That would be Interesting to see lads for sure. This one is ace but rear tyre clearance isn’t the best. Just got to find time to ride it now. I do want a kids balance or first bike made by him for sure.
  8. Just got to find or adapt my bar ends to fit these bars but it’s so much fun what I have spent on it, not very much.
  9. It’s built now and just about rideable need to sort a few bits to finish it off but this is how it looks now.
  10. Would of like a leeson but this came up and thought I’d give it a go raw and pleased to see the brazing too. Coming along nicely and hopefully rideable by next weekend.
  11. Almost complete. Waiting on the decals and hubs to get the wheels built and then finally ride again. Massive shout to @Addict Ben for sorting the awesome top cap set up, stem and one finger levers.
  12. There’s a big ride organised porthcawl 30th may
  13. A little bit more striping and it’s getting close to being clear coated.
  14. I’m not too sure on the year to be honest can’t find a lot out about it. There was a Belgium rider who rode this but not found anything more out. it’s looking pretty different now and does hop and spin rather nicely. Waiting on a few bits before I can actually ride it properly. Only a little brakeless play around in the garden so far.
  15. I quite like but only for now. Should be wheels are on the way but may need a tyre swap the 2.4 doesn’t seem to squeeze in the rear hopefully 2.35 will do. It will be rollable brakeless this weekend to play with.
  16. I finally found a pic of my first trials bike and now have an urge to build one up again. Although the frame is proving hard to find. A resprayed handsome dog rockstar but whether it was from factory like that or a copy I don’t know.

  18. I can try I’m due up Yorkshire way for ard moors next year so see what can be arranged. It’s not completed so once it’s done I’ve got a new camera to play with so will get some proper shots of it
  19. So I found a pace frame have spent some time polishing it up. And put it together dry quickly because I couldn’t wait. Got some correct forks coming but still need a 5 arm silver Middleburn bashguard.
  20. The front hub rocked up and now laced. Now to get brakes mounts onto the forks, crank bolts and a cable guide fitted to the underside
  21. I’ve got this silver one but akrigg’s had more holes in so maybe drill this one I don’t know yet. Thank you for the offer though dude
  22. Yeh it’s getting there and wouldn’t ruin a classic build if I can help it. Those el gatos aren’t the best I’ve got a brand new set that I’m not sure what to do with as theses are so clean already.
  23. Little bit more coming together now, a few more deliveries to turn up still but it’s getting there.
  24. Got some higher rise bars on it now and is a lot nicer
