    Very nice indeed, and a bargain for the frame..

    Great looking bike ya got there . The better colour option IMO :wink: .

    I was looking at getting one of these too but was put off when I heard a whisper that the the rear pivots have "bushings" instead of bearings , is this true ?

    I don't suppose you've had any cause to have the rear end apart yet to check have you ?

    ( It's just a durability/stiction bee I have in my bonnet about bushings . That and you can easily get bearings rather than custom made bushings .)

    Enjoy the ride and let us know how she goes . 8)

    Bushings are great... very smooth and very reliable, and last for ages... and Titus will hook you up with new ones when you need them.
    I like bikes and stuff

    My old Racer X had bushes in the Horst Link, but as they move all of 5 degrees they're often more sensible than bearings, which tend to seize due to the extremely limited range of motion.

    Thanks for the update :cry:
    That's NOT what I wanted t hear . Just my pref but still prefer bearings .

    Strike another one off the wanted list then . Ah well onwards and upwards eh chaps ?

    Many happy trails t ya though still looks bloody gorgeous . :mrgreen:
