built this up from a bare frame using quite a few parts I already had and a few off e-bay. I just wanted a light bike for regular off-road use and I didn't want to be waiting ages to source parts so some of you may think some of the parts let it down. I got the decals off e-bay France but they're a bit amateurish I think. I know the logos polished into the frame but I thought it looked a bit bare. If anyone has a template for better decals I'd like to ask Gil if he can print something off. The frame doesn't like a long fork, I had some SIDs on it before and despite having the travel reduced to 63mm it was still too long and handled like a dog. I should have known as the originals would have been Obsys I guess. So I got this Pace MXC which has been resurrected by Mr Price (thanks Tim!) and gives just the right amount of travel.

Might be wrong, but i didn't think Sunn introduced the Exact until '97, and the Exact ti in '98. Check this link.

Nice Morati HC1.1 frame 8)

Had to sell my '97 with full Morati finishing kit due to threat of redundancy :cry:

Serial number on BB shell should tell you year of manufacture, will be SM (Sunn Morati) then 2 digits for year then 4 or 6 digits.
