The finished article!Iv ridden it and need a stiffer spring on the fox vanilla but apart from that its fantastic!
I would love to get it resprayed in the same colour but from what iv heard the original marin paint is pretty hard stuff to get off?

If I can get to work in the morning (freaking snow :evil:) I'll ask him. There's no shock on it though as it was used for the 'Dale I built up. The shock was knackered on it ('dale not Marin).
