Some rather special parts came today from our friends over on Fatcogs.
NOS Suntour XC Pro front Mech and a full set off NOS Suntour XC Pro Cantilevers,neither have ever been fitted and are spotless.

The icing on the cake is a copy of the original Receipt from Fat City Cycles, with the XC Pro parts on :D

great find and a stunning colour for a Monster! Do these beautíful frames have any 'weaknesses' to look out for if you find one? (like the seattube of a Yo)

Well sat in my office looking at my frames that need building, I'm drawn to a little update on the Monster.I have sourced a supplier for the spindle for the Fat Chance press in Bottom brackets, a problem for some looking for these.Im happy to say I have found that Cook Bros can supply these or complete Press in BB if required.
I will order one after Christmas and advise the quality if anyone is interested.
So apart from the spindle all I require to finish is a 1" headset, king or Suntour, a 1" cable hanger Dia compe and a nice fresh pair of Amber walls :wink: So all in all fairly straight forward to source ,if not a little time consuming.
So I'm planning on finishing this build in the spring :D

I cannot reiterate enough, just how good the original Pepto pink paintwork is ,I understand when Nate said it was almost too nice to ride and in fact agree with him :shock:

Though saying that I am planning on racing it at next Years Mountain Mayhem, i'm sure you would agree it would be rude not too :wink:

Anyway, for now please find some more photos and I promise I will buy a decent camera for the final build
