And so another project is underway and not a shimano part will be in sight. Jon did the usual great custom paint job as you can see the back is black and the forks were engineered to fit the MC2 fork. How he has done it i am still trying to work out. I have had to go in my white industries and grafton box to find the bits for this project.

I'm not sure how I got this fork at such a bargain price but it weighs nothing. The fork is called massi and is from china.

Thanks andy

Very nice.. another superb paint job!

Massi are a bike manufacture, very rare, but sweet bikes

Should really have Attitude decals though

Fork is Mosso, check eBay, they're pretty nice and sell for ~$50

It's an Attitude frame.

Thinner downtube
No boron reinforcement
Wrong cable stops
