The crank caps say Turbo  , HL TURBO maybe?


Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. ......

Yep nail on the head, seat clamp would make it an 84. I've got a few bits ready so hopefully this shouldn't take too long.

A few pics for inspiration. I'm going to be a bit controversial with this by not trying to go spec. No turbo stem or Seat post, and I'm running 900's & tech 3's.
The Seat tube angle on the 84 is a bit better suited for a layback Seat post that I will be using. Although it was an 83 in my local bike shop back in the day I always remember this cover making an impact.

Looking forward to seeing this done Glynn, I've been a fan of your builds for 12 years now and each one has been built with an amazing attention to detail. There's too many 'ta-da? builds on FB, parts thrown together and then just finished pics to go like fishing with. As with John's Rampar, it's a detailed build thread on the forum that I enjoy and remember the most.

Brake callipers re assembled, mx900's and the tech 3's have been chromed, chain ring polished. Nos Oakley's dug out of the cave, nos suntour 16t freewheel. I dropped the crank caps and seatclamp off with butts yesterday for rechrome. I'm getting a bit more giddy about this now.
Also found an excellent how to on recovering the Seat too when that arrives I can't wait to get cracking.

Never thought I?d get round to doing one of these tbh. It was always on the wish list but with my rule of I'm only buying now to build with the intention of riding it seemed even further out of reach. Well not now , can't wait to turn out on it next year  :coolsmiley:
