Hello everyone

im new to Donwhill , but not new to bikes as im 30 now and been working on bikes since i was 17 always had ridiculous triple clamps on 16" hardtails.
Now it's time for downhill.
It is not the lightest bike in the world ,but im not the lightest person being a robust 18.5 stone LOL.
I have stripped the frame and is getting powder coated gloss white with a black seat tower and im putting decals made out of 3m carbon niloc on it home made.
Here are some pics of the parts i have too choose from at the momment.
any left overs i will sell.
More pics to follow when painted.

Yeah those monsters shadow over everything , the frame is 2004 buddy.
not amazingly retro but still old.
Cromo steel so will last forever , as im 18 stone i went for heavier and stronger components.
Should be picking the frame up tomorow :D

will put pics up then

Nice choice....
Here's a couple pics of my old one.
Really heavy bike but built like a brick shit house!
Really long bike but ultra stable, especially in the air.

Isn't it a D8 rather then a cromo 8?

Just got some continental diesel tyres , and am considering getting the linkages anodised green , but minimum order is £75.00 at the anodisers in manchester ,so need to find more bits to throw in.

Nice project 8) , never heard of the bike before but looks like a proper weapon :)

Monster T's are great, had a set for a previous project that never got past the frame stage, sold them when i sold the frame, wishing i'd kept them for my current DH8 project, i'd prefer them over the Shivers i have.

a couple of friends of mine from NZ ride/have/had keewee bikes

one of them, a guy called jason marsh had an early prototype, it was painted baby blue and like yours was steel, super long wheelbase on it though, didn't have the seat tower assembly though. he then sold it to andy durno the bass player from the band "head like a hole" i sent it to NZ for him via england after picking it up in morzine.

they all like them and not just because the have keewee written on them!! :D 8)
