That is exquisite. I can hear it rumble just looking at the pictures!

A hugely iconic bike, and well worth the effort. Much respect!

What's the story with the frame? Is it original or a re-made one like Ameybrooks?

I'm a philistine and wouldn't recognise a real Yeti from the Sasquatch.

As far as unicorn frames go, that there has to be the definition.

Excellent.

Every week this sight just raises the bar, and that's top notch. A really great build.

Deja vu all over again, Rodders... Bringing it to Mayhem to fall off it (like you did on your earlier effort)?? ;-)
