New pics as now finished just in time for FoD :D

Only things to change are:
1) new Kevlar back tyre
2) Longer stem
3) spray fork lowers or get green decals made for them
4) M739 V brake arms
5) Suntour XC Pro thumbies

I have had a bit of a change of direction colour wise. I think its now going to be green & silver.

It now has a smattering of green bling as you can see.....not too much i hope :)
I have polished the Avid SD 2 levers & the shifter mounts as the laquer was tarnished.
I have changed the Strong Arm chainset for a minty XT m739, the old Kona seatpost for a mint Roox and the old Kona bars for a pair of unknown brand NOS green anno ones.

Hope it rides ok :wink:

I like it, but the fork looks to long for this frame.

Yeah i did think it might be :?

It's set up with quite a bit of sag. I'll see how it rides, may end up swopping for some RC36's
