Here's the GT STS-2 I'm working on with some detail shots - its still a work in progress.
I reckon the thermoplastic looks like some sort of snakeskin when you polish it...

I've put a Look Fournales fork on the front but I've replaced all the accessable bolts for titanium
and the forks now weigh in at an unbelievable 1200g. They are as stiff as a plank with zero flex whatsoever.
I'm now waiting for some olives and fittings for my Magura HS33s to finish the thing off for christmas hopefully??
Although the black thermoplastic will probably explode into flames in the Aussie sun.

I'll post final pics over the Christmas hopefully??

I had to be patient. I waited 2 years for the forks to turn up an another year for a bike that would do them justice. So I'm pretty happy with the way it's turning out... :D

Nice, one of the best looking STS bikes at the moment I think.
