    Recoloured the decals (tried to colour match the pink LFGSS ones but IRL not quite right which is annoying) and got them printed by retro decals.

    Extra stoked as went to local charity bike workshop place this morning to pick up something i'd ordered and asked to have a rummage in parts bin for a 27.0 seatpost while i was there. been looking out for a seatpost on ebay etc for a while. Unbeliveably at the top of the pile waiting for me was a 27.0 zoom seatpost no logos but not badly scratched or anything, and even found some clampy bits that fitted! £5 later and there was one big smile on my face riding home.

    So build as it stands. Front tyre is on the way, got dyno lights ready to fit just need some wires. Need handlebars and have a rideable bike. Although will be changing some bits out for sure (different stem, silver headset spacers, 9+ speed rear wheel+cassette, need a front deraileur, probs new chainrings, crate/box etc etc)

    Today was a good day! I decided a few months ago to get clydesdale fork, mainly for carting around doggo/basketball+shoes/other miscellaneous items, then looked up how much they cost and decided not to. Eventually I thought fuck it I want it. But decided if I'm willing to spend that much I'll to ask my mate if he'll build me some as gives him business and custom shit is cool. (plug my guy real quick https://www.lordcycles.co.uk/)

    Today Chris dropped off the forks + the frame with matchy matchy paint. So cargo/dogmobile is a go.

    Frame is a Raleigh Montage. Basically bought because i like the lugged/classic look and was hopeful there might be clearance for big tyres due to crimps in chainstays. Could fit 2.3 DTH's off the rockhopper (barely) but as I'd decided to go for repaint anyway gave it an extra lil ghetto crimp to be sure.

    New paint is RAL 7047. Powder coaters didn't do the best job to be honest but will do.

    The second tier of the garden is slightly sloped so I'm planning level it out by raising it up (more digging and more/walls), hoping that I will be able to get rid of a lot of earth this way. Also some will go back inside the base walls under concrete and insulation . But that's probably very unrealistic so likely will end up as skip(s)/collection..

    Dirt half pipe is a big shout tbh.
