Me neither, but I ain't complaining.


Me neither :lol: But it had sat in the garage for too long, with no cash to do the work required, I knew Neil wanted one and am a fan of his builds so it was 'time' to pass it on.... looking forward to seeing it done :D


Adrian, did you manage to send the Dave Yates to him, for the refinish in The eight colour paint fade of the Donkis knob...?

Have you made any progress....?

It's not gone yet, but will soon be on it's way I believe.

I had a good look at the frame when I picked up the CW. It's a really nice and very well thought out frame, and it seems to bear little resemblance to my much later 2002 version, but that could be a lot to do with the tubeset, as mine is Reynolds 853.

Hi Carl, as Neil said it's still in the garage - I had a real wobble over it regarding the forks, (which version of Mag's to use), sorted now and only last week I contacted Debbie to get a slot arrange for the paint. I have all the parts needed now - XTR/m231CD/Onza skinwall Porcs/control tech bits needed to get it like the pics on this thread.

Sorry to see the CATS' go but I really am trying to get the numbers down and it came to a choice between the two.
