Loving this build, its giving me lots of inspiration for the Orange. Really glad I am not alone in building an old school bouncer.

Keep up the good work 8)

Pretty much done and riding barring a few tweeks, will need a chain device/retainer of some sort but the crank arm is very tight to the chainring, tried an old MRP roller one and the cranks hit the rollers pretty bad :? , it goes and stops for now anyway :)

Gave up on the old DH4 brakes i bought (needing serviced) and went for Mono6's, bought on E-bay last monday collected from the PO thismorning, a bit luckier with these as they are nice with no issues at all, even came with the 203mm adaptors so fitted straight on, running these with 203mm discs at both ends , rear is needing another bleed and i've still to fit my spare Goodridge hose to the front.

Went for burly steel Azonic cranks with an ISIS axle, pedals are vicious double cage things (dont know the make but they seem high quality)

Would also like a longer stem than the zero reach one thats on there, maybe go for a 50mm.

Crank tight against chainring, seemingly no space to run a chain retainer/roller would need to space crank right out to run a decent size middle ring :? .

OK, but where is engine? :P Thought that will be enduro motorbike. Seen half build in the flesh, it's a real beast :shock: Freaking thing. I'm really jealous now.
Love the cranks BTW, good choice.
