Here she is -

Poor pics, was starting to rain, getting dark too!

Its virtually finished, need to fiddle with the brakes a bit, and a new rear gear cable, but I wasnt in the mood for stripping down gripshift Xrays!!!

The forks are new orange F8's, bought direct from the factory. I got them in raw unpainted finish, and they were sent back to Bob Jackson, who did the original 2007 reissue frames.

What do y'all think??

Spec to follow.

(excuse the size, its a 21"!!!!!)
