MKS II

Picked up this frame real cheap from Universe Cycles in Parramatta (awesome guys, lots of new old stock, check them out!)

I wanted to keep it primarily Jap Spec, took me a few months to sort parts using Ebay, Wiggle and my LBS (shout outs to the boys at Deus on oxford st, awesome guys!)

decided to stick with a Silver, Gold, Tan colourway, turned out a real treat, definitely my favourite baby amongst my fleet.

I dig it - the turbo '80 is a nice touch too (they are damn nice saddles - awesome to see them back in production with leather covers)

but really, that's rubbish. We get none of it because the choices are illusory.

A lovely bike with a classic look. It looks like a sweet ride.

Now all you need to do is take all those tasty parts and hang em on a real track frame instead of a lazy angled conversion.
