    Do it! I did the same to an old Orange C16R, dragging it kicking and screaming into the 21st Century (even had all the cable guides removed to run it singlespeed) . . . wish I’d kept it ๐Ÿ˜•

    ๐Ÿ˜†

    If I had a pound for ever time you’ve said that, I’d have around eighty-three pounds, Mama. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Mama, an update

    get on to the council about the weeds, path, wall etc. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Bought an old (circa 1999) 18″ GT Tempest (complete original spec – 1 lady owner ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) for ยฃ20 from a friend to replace the rubbish womens ahem.. “mtb” my GF has had for years (obviously too big so was looking for a cheap 15-17″ frame to build all the parts onto – Thanks mama ๐Ÿ˜€ ).
    Switched the 130mm stem for an old 50mm DH stem I had kicking around. Bars to some nice Race Face XC risers off here (ยฃ12) and switched the pedals and saddle to V8s and a Spank DJ stem I took off a race BMX I bought from here too. they’re both hideous but will do the job (comfy enough for my GF without going womens specific so I can er.. borrow it ;))

    rides well and with the seat slammed it jumps nicely (even with 65mm? of ropey dried out elastomer non damped suspension up front)
