Hello and Welcome, I finally got around to installing the drilled brake levers and natural cork handlebar tape for the Sportex 12, along with with the hoods. I was not real pleased with the way the first set cleaned up. And I was not to wild about the suicide levers either.I also thought the black cork-tape looked dull. After it was finished I realized it was not the "classic road bike look" I was after.
Once the drilled levers were cleaned up and looking good,it was obvious that I needed to make the change. A few friends had pointed it out as well. (Thanks Guys) The only regret I have was wasting the black cork tape. But I would have regretted not making the change even more.
Now that the drilled levers with the brown brake lever hoods are on the bike with the natural cork tape. I think it looks 100% better! I just wish it would warm -up a little. I would really like to take it for a test ride. And the Continental too! That is If I can reach the pedals.
Good News! I think I have found new homes for the 2 like new entry level mountain bikes. And they are both going to the same town. So that will save some gas and time.
Well I hope you like the changes as much as I do. Right now I`m trying to decide which bike will be my next project. I`ll post some "before pics" as soon as I decide.
That's pretty much all I have for now. As soon as I figure out what my next project will be I will post some information about it. In the meantime please RIDE SAFE and always remember to RESCUE,RESTORE & RECYCLE
