I've wanted one of these since they can out, but have never justified it to myself. I've had a small Santa Cruz Chameleon built as a 4x/play bike since around 2004 but due to lack of use I sold this in bits early last year...
...since then the kids have decided they want to start playing at the local jump/4x tracks so I've managed to justify another build. I've been looking for a few months and ended up with a later HT frame off 'the bay' around a month back.
It's been slow progress, originally I wanted to go for a black frame and when I found this one I had a set of MR T's running single crown I thought would be perfect. I don't want to respray this frame and have decided the MR T's are a little before this frames time and would be better suited on something else.
I'm going for relatively new components mainly due to having the parts available.
Anyway some pictures to show you where it's currently at:
Frame late one night in it's new home:
Some bits bolted up:
Original Bulbs on 321s bolted up:
As you can see, I've not really made any real progress... time is limited to late nights when the kids are in bed and the camera takes cr*p pics!
