Not sure if the gold rims go with the white and chrome..........would look good on my Jackson though :)

Seriously though looks like something from SHADO / UFO :D Brilliant.

Looks fantastic in white :) White/gold/silver do go very well together (as per my Stumpjumper).
Should make for a cool and interesting ride when it's finished.

That's an amazing frame, reminds me of the metal plate between the two kitchen sinks where the mangle clamped onto :shock:

I am looking for another frame. Then i could use the two as a pair gates. On a design thought it looks similar to a Paris Galibier.

Shame the mould no longer exists.I would be interested to see one made from carbon fibre :shock:

AH! the Paris Galibier now thats one bike frame I would love tho have. I had a Paris tour de France model a few years ago but now sadly long gone :(
Re your Kirk I so pleased that Im not the only one that think that these are worth restoring, good luck with the build. Do you have the decals for the frame?\

I also have a couple of Kirk Revolution ATB Frames one NOS but I've not built them up yet, as the front gear is a weird Shimano bugger thats as rare as rocking horse poo to get hold of.

This is one of mine that I did a while back & that is part of my ever growing collection.
