Thanks to all for your kind words 8)

I must confess that I built it last week, the day I picked up to tell the truth :oops: and am toying with tyre options .......

I have been collecting & storing parts for it, won't be all XTR but mostly M739 XT and a little sprinkling of hope. I am awaiting 1 final part the seatpost. I may see if I can get a pic of it bult up at the weekend for you lot :wink:

Absolutely stunning. I've thought along similar lines myself with some of my favourite livery's of all time but in my head they don't work on a push bike. for e.g. Martini Integrale's and S4's, Marlboro Mclaren Honda's, Rothman's Porcshe's etc. Even the Lucky Strike suzuki's, Marlboro Yam's and the current Repsol Honda's. Only one I think might work is the JPS Lotus colours but I think you really have nailed that one, hope you use the Gulf style head badge too, its perfect.
