Here is my next project a 99 GT xcr1000 which Ba57ards kindly karma'd me. I managed to get it washed the other day and she shone up a treat. My plans are to rebuild it to near spec. I've actually just won another xcr1000 frame on ebay with a crack on the seat tube to use as a donor so I'll be taking the swing arm etc off that to use on this front end.

Heres a pic of the front end for time being.

I do have some SID XC's for it and other parts, I wil get pics tomorrow.

Here is the donor frame, I will use the swing arm off this.

Any the crack in the donor front end, I'm not 100% sure its the frame or just the paint.
