Not really. I've managed to source some parts i want, stem, bars etc but i'm having second thoughts about the frame. I don't think it will take the abuse of 4x tracks, bmx tracks and dirt jumps...and in really don't want to ruin a lovely frame. I'm think i'm going to source a Brian lopes or a Ruckus frame with shot paint work and do the same again, sand down, spray black etc. I think it will be worth it in the end. i'm defo keeping the forks, even though there are far better out there i just lusted for them as a kid and still love the look of them now lol.

Nice. Just looked at this.
A mate of mine has an old bright green Avalanche that he uses for jumping. Seems fairly bomb proof.

That Ruckus on Ebay is perfect, i think i'll be watching that ;)

The Avalanche might well take it...i just don't want to risk it (i am 16 stone lol) where as the Lopes and Ruckus frames seem alot more solid.

They might be bombproof, but they sure as hell aren't DaveProof:

That was an Avalanche. '98, I believe.
