Couldn't find a 'show us your'-thread of Proflex!?! :?

I recently bought a 855 (after selling my 856 some time ago :( ). Bought it for €50 with LX V-brakes, LX rear mech, XT front mech, XT lever/shifter combo and XTR (M900 crank)! Very pleased with that.. :P It got a new coil spring for the rear, but nothing for the Vector2. Luckily I had some Land Rover bushes, so I can start building it....

Was looking for some nice examples, so that's way I started this thread!

Let me see your Proflex! :P

Here's mine, not quite there yet :oops:
757 with carbon swinger, Risse shock, discs and Easton carbon bits - bit of a retromod. Sorry I don't like Girvin forks !
Brings me back to my 552 of many years past which was the same colours and a bike I have fond memories of.
