Good score. Polished frames like that should clean up really well if you can source new decals.

Look forward to seeing it built up 8)

Very cool indeed...didn't realize anyone other than Manitou built a full sus with that design.

Looks like you need to have long leggys to pedal that, what size is it?

cheers,
