Were those Azonic bars on the first few pics? (The silver ones).

I've got a pair on my Lava Dome, they are a lovely shape.

Another lovely build, looks much nicer with the black tyres/stem/bars too.

Were the original decals not original? They are a lot larger than the one's you purchased from Orange...and where did the head badge go??

I'd go 120m forks, parts are what riding you want to do but single up front and bash my choice, BB size just measure the shell size but guessing its 73mm and bottom bracket depends on the cranks.

Get some decent strong wheels. Anything will do.

In actual fact, just copy AJs build. It's very nice.
