  • Finished a build using a frame I got from here a few months ago. First time build for me and overall pleased with it!

    Forgot to put down the left hood before photo!

  • I remember that frame .you done a great job. But change that seatpost for a polish areo seatpost and change the saddle and bartape.

  • I like how I have it, cheers!

  • I've swapped the post over for a silver one, the rest I will mess about with as time goes on. Just happy it's up and running. I have a cougar frame to work on next which will take most of my attention.

  • I think it's a great build. How does it ride?

    For a nice shouty look you could go hot pink on saddle and bar tape. Good luck finding a hot pink saddle that you like, though...

  • I had green tape on at first and it was just a touch too loud. I would like to try purple but swapping it is too costly right now.

    It rides great! Really responsive and pretty comfortable.

  • I have a soft spot for Scapin steel; I currently have three of them: a very elegant ks-25, a modern S8 and a KS Pro.
    I fell in love with the KS-Pro when I saw the @Noca's one.
    Mine was already beautiful when I found her, with her original blue steel fork. But during the quarantine I took the time to bring it to the present day. And it's still beautiful.
