Few more things to complete, fork adjusters will be anodised green along with the through axle, hub adaptors & brake adaptors. Also plan to upgrade the brake adaptor & caliper bolts ( 8 ) to titanium.

Thanks
Matt

Very nice.

I would try and getting a better matching set of bars though if you are keen on colour co-ordinating.

It's different! Kinda cool though, nice work :)

Is it to ride or just a project?
