    Default L21 pdt finished !

    You may recall I bought Simon (2ptjoe's) strada last year after it had decorated his front room for some time (clearly his misus is more understanding than mine !!). Well after a number of months of stripping, cleaning, rebuilding and raiding the parts cave, thought you might like to see the finished result. Needed a bit of mechanical attention - clutch, forks, cables, bearings etc and a full service and just a few finishing jobs left. Certainly feels a lot lighter with mag wheels, alloy subframe and a smattering of carbon trinkets.

    Big up to Jasper for helping me out on a few tricky bits - thanks mate !

    Gets its first outing tomorrow to the caring for cars charity gig in Bristol - will be interesting to see how it compares to L888 RED !

    Default Gert lush !

    Natty - L21 looks straight off the production line. I hope she goes as well as she looks. Have you chipped her & opened the airbox for the cans ?
    See you tomorrow to compare magnesium rims.

    Chuffed to bits for you Nat.
    As you know i wasn't overly sure about letting her go and i still say thats it's the only bike i've ever regretted selling. I will get another, it's just when.

    Any how. She looks fab. You've done a great job and i couldn't have wished for her to have gone to a better new owner.

    Now give it back.
