Well I finished the majority of the build. I waited 4 months for the fork to show up....it never did so I had to be creative. I raided the crown from a Trek Black Mogul and applied it to the Green Mogul fork (steerer tube wasn't long enough). I went with full XT (Front and Rear mech are newer Deore XT).

Enjoy!

Went with a Easton stem and seatpost, Ritchey rims, Ritchey handlebar, Ritchey tires, Vetta seat, and Control Stix bar ends.

Thanks RB'rs! It surprisingly rides really well. Being 240 lbs its really nice to ride. But I am thinking of swapping out the rear shock with a lockout. Just gotta paint the arm. Any suggestions on what colour? Black, Purple, Silver...etc...etc?!
