Never realised they did an E-stay 8) ....I think I may have a punt if bidding doesn't go silly. Shame about the RST forks though...looks like these were original

Yeah it's quite smart isn't it. The frame appears really good.
Shame about the forks, but the frame has potential

I was thinking similar lines, pondered whether Amp forks would work or not?

AMP's are always a good choice on a Benz but I think the frame is late 90's and AMP has been done numerous times before so something different (and preferably German) , would need to do some research
