Well done Woody - that turned out superbly: clean and catalogue fresh.

My only reservation is ..... you beat me to it.

That looks awesome! Inspiring work!

Only thing I'd address is adding the Syncros decal to the stem.

Curious on the weight if you'd be able to indulge me. ;)

Cheers Frank , and thanks to all who've left kind comments.

I was thinking of leaving the stem as it is. As in the 1991 brochure the stem has no decals on it. I think it looks more subtle without having syncros decals plastered everywhere.

I'll try and get some scales to weigh it , its not that light though. I would say around 26 / 27 lbs :wink:

Looks great Chris. Another top notch build.

You need to get a decent camera though to really do it some justice photographically.

I've got a decent Nikon DSLR I'll swap for your Yeti... :wink:
