I know these original I-Drives are prone to the seat tube cracking but like yourself I'd happily take a punt at building one up, the ride really is one of the best 'old' full sussers in my humble opinion. I look forward to seeing this build progress :)

Thanks! Yeah to be honest I've heard lots of good reviews about the idrive so cant wait till this one is finished to get a ride out on it.
