Coming on Great Guns this Build :twisted:

Just had the call from Argos Racing, and it's been locked in for September 17 so this Thread may lay dormant until shortly thereafter.. But.. I will update the Build Spec and maybe even upload a photo or two of some of the kit..

I did win some nice forks yesterday which will be getting the Champagne Treatment too.. 8)
