most on here will know how much i've been after one of these :roll: well last week i seen my chance on ebay and went for it :D it's got 1 silly little dent on the underside of the swingarm and apart from that it's mint :D

i'm going to swap most the parts over from my dh8 and rebuild that in the next couple of weeks , so on to the pictures..............

i also noticed it's got a nukeproof spring on a manitou shock :D

it'll be a quick build once it's painted 8)
