Just waiting for brake calipers to turn up :). Also, was going to use red cables (from the CK) but it didn't look right against all the black so have gone with carbon Goodridge hoses...Almost there! 8)

Not the biggest fan of the saddle although aesthetically it does suit the build.

Impecable otherwise. Well done.
