Lovely mate excellent job 8) 8)

I'm wondering how it would look with polished stem/blue bars/black grips :wink:

Col 8)


+1 for the polished stem (to match fork crown and post)

and possibly a bar that matches the rims for contrast? hmmm

otherwise, utterly lovely build!

ps, love your signature!

So___ how does it ride? :wink:


To be honest it hasnt been riden properly yet. Only down the road to set it up. But so far it seems awsome. Shifts so smooth and the brakes are sharper than my freinds hope tech m4 evo's. It does feel racey. gives you the feel of an outburst. Got to plan a ride soon though.

That's a good looking bike.

Th polished forks with blue decals look really nice on it.
