Like the signed T too....can I spot Chris Brock and the Forte bros on there, now they were (and still are) a rad bunch of riders.

Tidy build, colours really work well :D

a mate had one in blue , sold it to someone who painted it black , badly :roll: :(

classic frames . very cool 8)

id like to pick up a 24mhz myself

top left is dylan clayton . a very smooth rider , what ever happened to him :?:

i used to ride with the 40s a bit . well when they came over to paignton to get heckled on street :lol: they should start using dirt at decoy instead of the slate they always get

our trails were on a burnt down holiday camp so we had a lot of land available . local chavs would always thrash around on crappy crossers . it was funny as hell when brock would turn up on his and casually do some easy 50ft kickers we dug pointing down a hill

the rims look like they would be a great design for tubeless ( without the drilling of course ) are they heavy ?

Nice build.
Dylan is fairly local to me and still rides, one of the most natural bike riders on the planet.

no they are really light, thats why they have the holes to reduce the weight :-)
