And keep up with the updates, cracking & different project that I'm sure a few of us are following with interest  :popcorn:

Indeed we are! A good choice with the blue grips too! :daumenhoch:

:LolLolLolLol: yup, mentioned above. The wheel sits over to one side in the forks too. I've tried other forks but they don't work with the small road headset  >:D

Hi Toby,

Sorry being slow with my 'keeping up to date with things' at the moment, but had been meaning to cycle back around to this thread.

Hi Pete,

Thanks for taking the time to post the info you shared, great stuff there and links too, top man. I did purchase the Stronglight headset on impulse and may be a bit too optimistic about saving the forks but that is plan A. I did have doubts about compatibility so after work I stripped the og headset off of the bike and luckily all is good, even the id of the fork crown race. Stack height looks good too so that's a relief. I thought the fork steerer was bent and that was possibly why the stem shaft wasn't inserting fully. After checking out your Sheldon Brown link and noticing that bmx steerer id was 1.1 smaller than road bike steerers I took another look. After a bit of a quick clean of the fork steerer the stem shaft did insert fully so checked the fork blades and they are definitely where all the bend is. So, salvageable but time will tell if they're keepers. I do have some forks to use if the og's have to go and go with a British threaded headset. I toyed with the idea of Campagnolo for the bb and headset but maybe that would be pushing the boat out too far on this build. The cost of this build is already rising too much for my liking but hopefully the end product will be worth it.

Those Cobras have a lot of interest but I thank you for standing down on those Pete. I hope all other Radsters take your lead and give me a chance on them  :LolLolLolLol:

I'll be posting a pic of the pedals I'll most likely be using very soon. I hope you guys will approve... they're Italian but not Campy  ;)

Not too many choices for decent bmx specific pedals so it looks like these are a no brainer for this build.

I've added the link to Catalogs in the Tech and Resto section John. I think that's the only BMX page though  :daumenhoch:

The pedals pictured above have been acquired  :daumenhoch:
The Cobras got grabbed by somebody else because something was going down at work and I hadn't entered my final high bid  :tickedoff:
