No mate not yet. Got both seat options and seat clamp options too. Got to take some bits for chrome.
I'm worse than a bird for changing my mind on stuff  ;D

I decided to do a total about face on this build . I'm now going down the tribute route, it was just itching at me so I decided to double up on some parts so I could build it for show trying to stick closely to the 84 cover and the poster inside from the same shoot.

So going from the two pics above the differences I notice from a spec HLT are:
Pro pads on the rear with salmon continental/tuff pads on the front.
No crank caps and a normal black sugino chainring.
SR Laprade seatpost
On the second pic you can make out the SC2 seatclamp
Harry is running araya aeros on suzue sealed hubs.
Gold chain
Gold decal set
Haro flo plate. Working out what was on that was a question I raised on the HLTDB group on FB. I could make out 7 and Oakley and thought the first number could possibly be a six. Sure enough it was, one eagle eyed member had seen a shot in another mag two months later of Harry racing with that plate.

Got my hands on a plate over Christmas and another seat to recover. Been busy tonight with the suede and got that done. Just waiting on the diamond back cut outs for the seat to come. In the next couple of weeks I'll have some chrome 890's to pick up and will be dropping off the arayas and suzue hubs for the wheel build.
