After searching around for some nice rigid forks for this found some onza tuff guy trials forks on ebay that I won, as they were fairly local went to pick them up. They were a silver and a bit tatty so decided to refresh them in the finest rattle can black. Have come out better than hoped, and I hoped for an excellent job. Shame abut the disc tab but decided against removing it. Found a bargain god headset on e bay for a tenner, sealed bearing split race cantt complain about it at all.

The dark bluey/black is very worn on the frame thinking of re-doing that bit in black?

This is shaping up very nicely 8).

Seems like a good place to flag up this Sunn which I've been following on eBay. As much as I would like to buy it, I already have too many ongoing projects and not enough space, so I'm hoping that someone here will do the right thing and take away the temptation :wink:.

A few nice changes now sporting some echo hydraulic rim brakes (french maguras basicly), thomson stem, easton ea70 riser bars, betd boosters (others on the way), odi ruffian grips and just been delivered mosso rigid forks. Have really fallen for this one not much left that i want/need to change now.
