Right,

I know I should have taken some photos before I started, but here's my project as it stands at the moment. I've never really attempted to refurbish a bike before, and have always brought new. I have realised that I've really been missing out, this way I can have the colour / shocks / wheels / forks that my wife tells me I can afford - brilliant!

I'm really pleased with the paint, I went to a local motor bike restoration place, it's silver powder coat, with a clear / red lacquer called Candy Red.

I'll try and get some better pictures of it posted up, as I progress my build.

Also strapped on my white forks, to canvass opinion on if fork colour goes ok with frame?

It's a 100mm fork and I think these frames were 100mm rear travel?
