Looks like a bike without and engien so i think the yamaha stickers are very apt.

You shuld change the red bolts to gold.

The sram mech with knuckles thing is out now?

That looks ace - I vaguely remember these when I first got into DH. It was the inspiration for my A Level Technology projevt when I decided that I would make my own frame, which had a swing arm like this.

This has been a real labout of love - will you ride it much?

gorgeous! loving the ohlins logos on the forks..!

is it just me or does the fork look to have loads of travel?? ie 10"??

and the BB looks really low...?

could just be the lack of Tyres on the bike though i guess! :lol:
