Those bars would rock. At least they wont slip !

Also look into Crupi gear as well - they have a great colour range

(I had some of my parts powdered to match the anno)

Depending on your chosen colour scheme I have some custom decals left over as well

I reckon grab a set of new school 1/18 landing gear forks and powder them black with gold decals - these frames need some chunk in the trunk to set off the fat downtube!


(I went with S&M Gay Bars instead of the red ones - I thought they suited me better)

Mate, Knight bikes does a Tuff neck style retro stem that would be perfect on your frame. I've just ordered the inverted model for my retro quadangle. $85 posted from colored tuffs, check it out.

I was thinking of Gold Brakes and Yellow Cable with Gold Lever. I`ve gotten around the thickness of the cable too
or Silver Brakes , clear cable , and silver levers

I'd go chrome calipers, but gold lever. Black grips and tyres. Gold chain ring and pedals, chrome cranks.

Looking good mate

Maybe black brakes and lever for a bit more contrast - but that depends on the cranks I suppose - black Paul V brakes and lever would look hot - and it would stop if you were to ride it

I'll check the seatpost and clamp size for you tomorrow - along with the my decal stash - might have some other options
