storm klein... NICE :D

if you really want them in purple, its a hassle, but it can be done. custom anodnisers could do it. theres a thread on STW a while back about some1 doing it. also a company on southerndownhill forum (yes I do get around ;)
any brass bushings would need to be removed. I had a silver part I wanted black re-coloured. After you've caustic soda'd to get the black off I'd advise getting them highly polished as it definately affects the finish.

I agree delboy009, these brakes do work bloody well! Got a bit of toe-in and Aztec pads and they work like a tree in the spokes!

I also have the serrated posts, with long posts up front..
