Bought the limited edition 2007 clockwork frame from brocklander and the build should (will!) be finished on Saturday!
That's my birthday - how good is that?
Will post some pics when it's ready.
Not retro, but it will be stunning.

Unfortunately, will have to sell the Evo 8, but will be left with Clockwork and wife's C16R (with RC35s) so not the end of the world!!

That was a good buy, would have had that myself it it had have been the right size!

Look forward to seeing the build, even though it's a 're-issue' it's still a classic and nice and rare to boot. What's going on it component wise?

Thanks for the birthday wishes - not sure 45 is one to celebrate though!

Build is mix of race face and XT, rock shox team SID (white with orange decals), white flite saddle, and a wheelset I had built a while ago.
I'll put full spec up with pics.

Had a bit of a personal debate between rock shox and fox, but having read various reviews and comparisons, went for the former.

Was in Leisure Lakes today and I always find it really difficult not to spend money - actually managed to resist today!

Sounds like a nice mix of components there, nice way of treating yourself for your 45th :D
