Hey guys

Going to be posting my progress of resurrecting my brothers old GT XCR 3000. So far I've stripped it and taken the frame apart.

Next steps are to:

- bead/shot blast the whole frame
- machine a disc mount for the rear triangle
- weld disc mount
- spray up frame and leave rear triangle raw with lacquer
- machine new bushes for main pivot and for the RS Monarch RT3 rear shock I will be using
- rebuild i-drive with new bearings
...all at work :)
