File comment: Started out as a battered old frame. It was a hard choice between keeping it classic or updating, I decided to upgrade. Still some finishing bits to do but I'm overall happy with it.

95 lava dome originally dark blue/gold.
Blasted and powder coated as the frame was in a very poor state paint work wise. Couldn't find the colour I wanted to start with so decided to change it up. Not one for being sentimental I wanted to create something one off.
Frame 17"
Deore xt derailleurs
Deore shifters to be fitted
Exotic straight bar
Mag suntour front suspension 110mm travel.
Kooka stem
Fsa headset
Bontrager rims
Conti tyres 2.2

Other small cheap parts, but all done on a budget.

Going for v brakes. Taking the disc of the rear, it was already on it.

I can't find any way to get a disc bracket to fit.
