That really is a stunning finish and I love those custom decals. More pictures saved into the ideas folder.
Looking forward to seeing the finished item.
Good work. 8)

Cheers Paul :)
It's certainly something else when it gets some sunlight on it, the paint constantly changes and is hard to capture in pictures.
Just can't wait to complete it now and start riding it

Got the hubs through the post yesterday so wheels 'll be the next job once the car stops sucking up all my bike funds! with car insurance, mot and repair bills all in the same month :(
..but I'm slowly getting closer to the light!

Couldn't resist dropping off the offending rims and hubs at the lbs today to be built, Online Bikes (formerly Wades Cycles) in Buckhurst hill. Should have them ready for me to pick up the following weekend.
It was reassuring to know that he'd sold and build up the same rims when they were available some 10 years or ago or so he reckons, so should get a proper job done on them. The price wasn't too hard to swallow either :)

Cheers mate!
I even remind myself whats been done looking back through the thread, also to help justify the time and money it's soaking up lol. By the time it's complete it'll have cost more than the Orange i bought last year :? (the gf better not see that bit)

Hope your new forks work out well albeit a tad less forgiving, keeping the ride true, just how it should be ;)
