I like it - not a lazy white paint job Kona but there's been some thought put into that - I like it with the polished bits. I would have polished the cranks as well myself to match.

Cool, they are stx rc cranks circa 2002 iirc but they kinda look like old xt jobbies so think I will sticker them as that seeing as the rest is xt. I couldn't bring myself to powder coat a set of those lol

Is there a link to gil_m's stuff?
