    The best eBay could offer. Well could offer for a fiver ๐Ÿ™‚ I did have one set of ride-on pink cables but at ยฃ25 a shot decided they couldn’t be that good!

    She outgrew this one

    (that’s not my garage by the way in case there was any castigation of paintwork to follow)

    The new one is a 2004 example we rode last week before buying. It was great but lacked significant pinkness as you can see:

    Swapped over a bunch of stuff from the old one, drilled out the cable management for full length outers and brake lines. Swapped those to pink obviously and added some pink rotors and bolts.

    Short of getting the airbrush out, I think it’s probably as pink as it’s going to get! The old one will be for sale when I’ve finished rebuilding it.

    You must really love her; both proper Horst link Turners, not the newer faux bar or DW that they’re using now! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Very nice. What brakes are those?

    Brakes are Hope Tech 2 in limited pink edition with pink superstar rotors. That’s a pink Hope BB as well which are as rare as rocking horse poo!

    My old 5-Spot was a Horst link. It’s like passing on an expensive watch!
