I'm not exactly an NJS Fetishist...

...but I just HAD to have this:


Just won it on ebay moments ago along with some Dura Ace Cranks, BB and seatpost a couple of days ago. The first time I bought parts in anticipation for something that I KNEW I was going to win...

Anyways, don't think I'm going to go too bat shit crazy with this build but I am SUPER FUCKING STOKED to have finally found one of these gems in my size and in such good condition. Fast back model too! But yeah, def not planning on going all NJS with this one. The DA gear was all in good cond and cheap...

Now if you don't mind, I'm going to go put on some lipstick before I give Ben's Cycle a call. Hopefully my eyeshadow won't be too runny afterwards...

how many builds do you have going concurrently?
if you ever need space feel free to send them my way

Let's just say I make it a point to never not have something going. I sometimes wonder if I enjoy building them more than actually riding them!

Not bad taste for a spoiled rich kid.

1) You are correct, my taste is very not bad

2) I stopped being a 'kid' about 10 years ago

3) I am not, nor have ever been rich. I've been working in magazine production for 12+ years now. Suffice it to say that when and if I choose to spoil myself and or the people around me is my prerogative...

4) If you choose to insult someone you could at least have the balls to put your name on it. As opposed to being a total cunt and using 'anonymous'

YOU won it? Then I will just like to apologize for bumping up the bid price. Please post some pictures when it is built. At least let me live semi-vicariously through you.

CyclingWMD said...

Christopher: Yeah man, that bitch is MINEZ! No worries on upping the auction price. All is fair in love and bidding- derf! Anyways, 12 hundy was my high bid and I was very happy to get it for a couple bucks less with shipping included. I'll be sure to post pics once it's complete!
