cool

id keep the colour as is , our jump bikes were always a mishmatch of colours mostly because we would buy parts based on them looking good in that particular colour and not being too worried about what they looked like as a bike :lol:

what are the forks ? look a little low to me , id go with some manitous or early bombers

azonic , protaper or club roost bars

a dmr chaincage would suit and to be truely autentic at least one part would be bent or broken

and dont forget the obligatory hope sticker ramdomly placed
