Thanks to Tangent, I received this in the post this morning. Updates on build will be posted here, but initial thoughts suggest plenty of ano red and a Canadian theme for bits... with the exception of a couple of Hope hubs for the wheels...

Will go with my Dekerf Mountain (DEK245) perfectly.

Fork will be a suitable AMP linkage jobbie...

Anyway, here's the frame... paint is remarkably good and I should get away with touching in the slight blemishes...

Rear end has a little shonk, but it seems to move at the point the top of the shock joins the frame... Maybe some spacers would help...

Anyway here's the pics...
