A moment of madness equated me to landing this frame at a very reasonable price :D

From having a dig around and a few PM's to Mickey @ Spooky it turns out that the frame is from around 1999 to 2000.

The frame condition is remarkable considering its age with the slightest odd mark and a little damage to the decals but nothing major.

The plan is to build it as a pub/runaround bike with bits from the store - a bit modern and a bit retro.......

I have some recently refurbished Marzochhi forks that I might try or some dirt jumpers for a heavier street build.....what ever that means :lol: :lol:

Anyhoo pics.......

Any thoughts re build would be much appreciated

F**king nice, amazing condition considering most I've seen have been well used!

Decent set of dirtjumper forks on there and hit up some trails I reckon :D

I have a Metal Head that serves as my around town bike. Super stiff rear end. Stand up and hammer!
