It will stay black 8) stealthy :D
Most of the bits are on the way, only major issue is a re-rim for the rear wheel.
Oh and the potentially huge issue of the fork steerer being too short :shock:
Ah the joys of impulse buying :lol:

I've 4 pot Hope brakes on another bike that i want to use, they work great, just drawn to more modern things as its an 05 bike
