An extra note. I'm still looking for a decent XTR M900 rear derailleur and also some black rings for the Cook Bros cranks.
If anyone here has anything suitable let me know.
cheers

.

This frame is looking stunning. Can’t wait to receive it from the states.
I’ll post some detail and close up shots when it arrives before I put components on it.
I can say with confidence that Dave Wilkins is a master of his art.

Arrived!

The frame has arrived from across the pond. I must say the colour in the flesh is phenomenal and so vibrant. I've always liked this colour but to see it fresh is amazing. Dave Wilkins has done an incredible job, the finish is immaculate, it's such a good show of his complete mastery with a spray gun.

The detailing is exquisite, he's even sprayed the bottle bolts to match the fade of the frame.

I'll have to leave it to harden now for a bit, but until then here are some shots of it un-wrapped.
