1983 Profile Racing Champ Pro

I have always like d the look of the Profile Champ frame and forks. I decided I wanted to build one differently to the others seen around the world. What started out as a salmon pink frame and forks soon became sunflower yellow and so the build began. The rims are probably the biggest bling on the bike which I'd purchased from a mate a year or so earlier but didn't know what to put them on so they just hung around until the Profile F&F came back from being recoated.

With the rims and tyres fitted to the frame and forks it was easy to see what coloured components were needed. Next was the Profile cranks which are original ones and not the reissue versions. The rest of the bike just sort of fell together over a couple of months.
