I reckon the orange-yellow fades look the best! Plus they look great in Kawasaki green (doesn't any bike? :wink: )

Nice frame BTW! 8)

The new forks have arrived - thanks Mauro. I now have a spare shock.

YAY!!! More bits for the build. Scored some Caramba Double Barrel Cranks in near
new condition with stronglight rings. I'm running with 2 rings and they're
weighing in at an amazing 553.5g for the cranks and rings. :shock: :shock: :shock:

Grrrrr after bead blasting I found that the frame had a big ding that needed to be refilled. I was going to Anodize it but with the filler, thats out the window. So off to the powdercoaters next

It's now going to be a bright silver mainframe/swingarm with satin black subframe to match the forks plus I'll be adding some newer components (probably red ano bits) to keep the weight down and keep it running smooth. The mountaincycle decals I have are the version with red through them hence the decision to add other red bits.

I'll list more parts as the build progresses but the current parts to date are...

Hurrycat vorace Carbon forks (1500g)
Hurrycat V-race dual air rear shock (172.5g)
Caramba Double Cranks with 3 rings (584g)
Hopetech V2 Brakes with goodrich hoses 
various sram bits & nokon cable

My baby's back from the powdercoaters who did an awesome job.

The mercury silver and satin black have matched the forks perfectly.
Can't really see the silver in this light but it's a metallic pearl cross.
The decals are from Gil M of course and are cracking quality too!!

So next up is prepping the shock which is non standard of course...
