  1. I picked this from my friend Len when he decided to move it on. He'd had the frame & forks since 96 and had it had been stashed in his room after he moved onto another bike. The chrome is in amazing condition! 


    It's not built as he had it back in 96 but I've been talking to him about how I was going to build it and what parts were going on ... so its fully LLP approved :-)

  3. Thought you guys would like a look at my latest mid school build ... a 94 prototype sliding post Zima. These were made in the early 90s in England by Steve Geall ... this one was a prototype as it was made from lighter weight tubing than other Zimas ( renown for their strength ... and weight! )


    Hope you like it :-)
