I've starting building this little beasty up, an Azonic KZ-2 frame I won on ebay near xmas, was the only bidder, came home and found I'd won it, great little surprise, now I'm finally getting close to finishing it

Trying to keep the colours down, but its hard!, going for mostly silver purple and black, with Marz DH3's on until I can find something purple!

As you can see its got crazy tyres sat on some nice old HuGi/D521's

Again, the groupsets crazy, trying to go for a different part of the range for every piece, XTR Rear Mech/XT Front/LX Brakes/DX Levers/STX-RC Cranks.... :P

Its going to have a black Kore Stem on soon, with the Purple X-lite bars, some gorilla brake boosters in purple, a purple DCD

Well, its started off as another bike so people can start riding with me if they dont bring theirs!

Should start a fleet going, start a retro only bike hire and guiding!

But its intended as a smaller trail bike for me, for a little more action on the downhills, plus I was yearning for silver and purple, its been so long

Plasticine when it gets mixed up, and there's no going back from there you have to mush it up till it goes a grey/brown colour.
