Sachs Rebirth

Rebuilt after about 10+ years in storage and thought I’d share. Had most of the early 2000s build kit still hanging around (including RS bar tape), but had to find a few odds and ends. Been a while since posting so apologies for any violations of build pic etiquette. Cheers!

Austin pal, if anything I am the one who is at risk for using "S", you got "C" you are fine!

Maybe we should meet up for a playdate.

Nice. The only "violation" is it's not a 55 and for sale in the classifieds.

Weisan, great colorway Guess I’m not the OG for that color. Contrary to my tag (and location, thanks for pointing out), I’ve relocated to Portland OR. Portland_cycling taken?

Beautiful resurrection.

Why'd you put it to sleep for so long?

My storage reality and your storage reality differ greatly. I aspire to this level of storage and applaud the rebirth of this beautiful machine....congrats!
