I bought this a couple of weeks ago from a mate down the coast:
Legend has it that the original owner bought it in '92/3 (“it’s a Mexico” right) thought the original paint was a bit too effeminate, so he got Joe Cosgrove to blow a coat of black over it, back in around 1994. I have no idea what the original paint looked like. Step forward a decade, and the paint’s pretty tired, but the frame is straight and clean.
Anyhoo, I fitted up some 25c Masters on the Nucleons, and put on some Record brakes and derailleurs, but I don’t have any ITA cups for muh Record crabons cranks, so until I find something else on wiggle that I absolutely must have, the build has kinda stalled. no rush. not like i ride anyway…
