Nice

I'd change the cranks for something better looking persoanlly, and the pedals look a bit naff to me, but the bike looks ace otherwise.

Why change the forks though? Like the Z1s on it at the mo, or are they a bit long in the front?

i'm changing the pedals to some DMR V12's
and the forks are z3's with 80mm travel,
the ones i'm getting are the same but just in red and less worn paint.
