As there have been a few threads with a DH theme (i.e. Foes and Shimano Airlines), heres some photos of the basis of one of my longer term projects which is currently on hold...

The frame is a 99 Turner Afterburner, and will eventually be the subject of a period build where possible. Not sure what fork will end up on the front but I've pretty much decided on the rest of the build.

Give me a couple of years and it should be finished... ;)

I wonder what gives you that impression... ;)

Yes I love my Turner frames, but they do have a tendancy to make the retro rides feel a bit second rate. :(
