Hi Fellows

After some long years to join all the parts that you are seeing..finally I assembled all the parts and here is the result.

Most of the parts are actual but I love the match with white\red and carbon black.

This frame was from my first bike back to 99. The first generation of I-Drive still performing very very well and with this fork\shock combination works 100%

I bought a new rear triangle at ebay with disc mounts and v-brake pivots, because in 99 the discs weren't available in this frame. After I removed the V-Brakes pivots and painted it in white to match the from triangle.

Then I colourize with some red things here and there...

Enjoy :)
