Thanx guys its been a long build this one, just took time sourcing parts and getting the build set up close to the team pics as i could :wink:

Hay anyone do you think that any of the ex team bikes still exist, id love to see how close this replica is as i only copied pics and looked at videos & mags, if there is one or any out there that would be awesome, or just see if any are still out there hiding away like many other Pro race bikes:D

them Shimano decals came with a Onza shimano GT decal original decal set i got of Ebay couple of year ago, think they used these and pretty sure these was the colours for the year of this replica :D
