    It's just that it's a "quiet" bike. It isn't loud and obnoxious like a lot of the other bikes on BF. It almost goes unnoticed or maybe it's stealth-like? Nice touches of red btw.

    I removed all of the components from my BMC (damaged in an accident) and built up the Ridley. This was my first build so I learned a lot from the experience and had a good time doing it.

    It needs some deep carbon wheels. They work the same magic as stripper shoes and a six pack.

    Hi,

    This is hot. It would be even hotter with a different stem. Nice job.
    Thanks.

    This one has potential and it just sizzles for now. What you need is some maroon scotch brite from your local automotive store and spend a day or two on it. Give it the true Lynskey look! You've already scrubbed the Scattante off and now its partly shiny, no turning back now!

    I love the paint job, but not the stem or seatpost.

    Restomod with 10s Ultegra, Respaced rear chainstay, Reynolds Ouzo Pro, and some Oval concepts in the office... All the original vintage DA 7400 and seat/fork/tubs/wheels/shifters/pedals are safely tucked away.

    Thanks. I am in the process of putting together another bike right now so I can keep riding while I disassemble this frame and polish it. That should take care of the contrast between the polished titanium seatpost and the frame. Then I think a titanium stem will tie everything together nicely.

    Cool! Since your bike is really a lynskey, I know Lynskey at one point sold the decal set along with the head badge for $45. I saw it on their old webpage which can be accessed here : www.lynskey.maycreate.com .

    Dunno about Hot, but Huffy's look like they can handle their own out there. +1 for the balls on Posting a huffy on this thread, and another for making it work. Welcome to BF community Tonger and hope to see more of what these Huffy's can do.
