Well I got some inspiration from a few well informed build threads ;-)

The forks actually came from a sale offering on Pink Bike. Have been looking for best part of a year for these. Unfortunately I didn’t get much change out of Mark in the States, as he was also sold out of anything shiny metallic resembling a Z2 atom.

According to the Californian seller, i bought them from (very nice chap who also emailed me service instructions) said he’d installed an extension kit on these to achieve 80mm travel without adjustment to overall stand-height. Will see how it looks with the new stiff strings whether that's true!

Wow Sándor, that is an excellent collection of components for a 1997 Hei Hei. This build is going to look top-notch 8) .

Did you decide to go with Smoke and Dart, and have you sorted out a choice of wheels?

Nothing to see here, move along.

Interesting you're going with the octolink BB and cranks. I've not heard good things but I'm curious how they'll fair especially as they always seem to get scuffed and tatty quickly.
