Looks good mate - I desparately wanted one of these of a Turner Burner when I first got into DH.

I had a pair of 151's - the best Boxxer's they made (I'm not a fan of the new ones), mine got a bit manky so I stripped the paint and polished them.

What amazes me when looking at older DH bikes, is just how steep the angles are....but I suppose were are getting more and more used to trail bikes with super slack angles.

I used to think low rise bars looked a bit odd, but having ridden them for a few years, the high rise bars of yesteryear look odd!

Good luck getting it finished - will it get ridden as intended?
