If you project the range of motion the shock has in an arc around the swingarm pivot, there's ~ 50mm clearance. ;)

I've been in that "spares" shed and believe me, it makes most LBS look like Halfords!

Sweet bike Arran, Is it orginal paint? Not going to refinish this one? I must get my finger out and get my Shockwave build moving. Do you still have those Deemax rims, i might get them off ye for it.

The frame's actually anodized so no need to repaint.

Sold the Deemax wheels a couple of weeks ago, sorry. I can possibly scrounge up the bits to build a decent pair of wheels for you if you're at a loss.
