Grabbed them off Evil Bay at a good deal. Probably due to missing brake shoes which had been replaced by what looks like Shimano Ultegra ones. Will be required to get some good lightweight brake shoes as well as titanium recessed nuts from Evil Bay once again.

Still, another all time favourites going onto the bike.

Question though, should I or should I not change those chainrings to all black Tunes? :roll:

Keep it original or get a lighter crank altogether.

What year/model Ghisallo are you using?

The frame's from 2003. I just received it and the some parts of the decals were damaged and dried up. And since the bike hasn't been built up and I'm awaiting the arrival of the parts, I shall be refurbishing the frame to tip top condition. 8)

Alright guys, here are some updates:

- The Tune parts which I had ordered from none other than Starbikes.com have been despatched! Woohoo!!!

- The frame has been stripped off all its decals and I'll be giving it a thorough polish before applying the new decals which I'll be ordering soon.

- Am still missing some parts and so I'll be doing more "soul searching"on Evilbay.
