Finally took the frame forks and all the parts to For The Riders to be built up this coming week.

So my old man arrived in Oz this morning with these beauties thats I had been looking for all over the place, one brand new and one about 95% tread left. Very happy and these are the perfect fit and will make my bike even more to spec.

Ps:The bike is finished and built thanks to the guys at fortheriders so will be off to pick it up tomorrow. Appy Dayz

So ladies and gentlemen here she is after 9 months and 3 weeks the bike is 99.9% finished I didnt even want to put these pics up as there just iphone shots but decided to as its been to long for the build and you guys just want to see it.

So the build is pretty much an exact replica of Rob Warner's Giant ATX DH Team, that I saw in an issue of a very old Dirt Magazine.

One final change has to be made and that just to swap the tyres over from the ones you see in these pics to the original Michelin Comp 16's I posted above.

I will get that done and and take the bike into the studio I work out of and photograph it fully with lots of details and sweet sweet light.

Looks great. The only thing that is missing is some dirt!
