When I had my bikes nicked there was one bike I really missed :shock: I put the feelers out and I got to know of a NOS Team SL, same colour and size as my old one :)

I had to pay a little over the odds for it :shock: but it did come in its original box and even had its little touch up paint pot :wink:

I think I've finally got all the bits and pieces to start the build :) so as I've got flu :? I think today is the day to start it :)

Not sure about the forks :? I've got a few to try on it and might end up going rigid :wink: the rest is going to be 952 XTR and Ringle :)

frame looks mint.

Not loving the forks, the they are a bit 'chunky' for the frame.

Lovely frame and personally like the forks too

Don't reckon you have flu though, no way would you be doing anything as strenous as typing let alone bike building :D

Beautiful frame.

Forks are OTT in my opinion. Some skinnier forks like Mag20/21 would really suit it 8)
