This is probably going to annoy a few people, but I think that this is one of the best looking bikes on here at the moment!

Well done

love where i live

madness tho.... first ride was at the beach :roll:

need to drop the forks to 80mm as the handling is a bit slower plus its ott 100mm and the handlebars need to be replaced as they are too heavy and too wide. But it will be perfected.....

dead chuffed with it all, its great quality.

last picture has an odd skew on it tho lol, it makes it look really out of proportion!

looking awsome. i can see you have put alot of love thought time and money into this build. But those forks are way to big for the geometry of that frame. A bit dragster. lol. ideally 80mm travel or 100mm max. but it is looking sexy as a build. :D
