Not updated this for a while have I..... nothing much to report really.

I bought a FOX DHX 5.0 for it, which turns out was advertised wrong and was too long

Image

Then I found a bargain Fox Vanilla RC in the correct size, so got that bought...

Image

This is how it stands at the moment, albeit now with a set of 2.5 swampthings on ready for some winter shredding....

I will probably strip it down come the new year and paint/powder coat the frame & forks.

Getting it refinished soon.....

What do you guys think about colour?

Mango Yellow like the Ms Isle or Orange like it is now?... Its all going one colour though regardless....
