Got this off pinkbike on thursday and arrived sat
Couldnt leave it sat about so built it with what i had although dont think it will be staying this way. Not sure on the forks, dont think they look chunky enough.
Everything is brand new SLX apart from hubs which are deore.
Didnt have a chain guide so its got a mech on the front for now.

I know it wouldn't be period and hell I love the Monsters as much as the next but one thing stands out as a suggestion .......

Modern singlecrown forks.

Something like the RS Domains would be cheap enough and fit nicely with the "fatness" of the frame.
