Well,

I manage to get my hand on a Funk and since I´ve always liked to have different bikes builds I think this could be a good project :)

Tryed to search between the diferent Funks and Bikes around the best ideas and ways to make it as good as possible so lets see your Opinions ;)

Theres only some small parts missing to finish the Bike(better brakes and Handlebar, etc) and also the Frame is on a touch up painting due to Customs professionalism on taking well care of other people parts.
Beside that almost had to pay a fortune(48% on top of total value) due to new policies on world wide customs where they ask for Origin Certificates to try to stop the China Frames/Bike Parts to come to this countrys! Whatever...

I will post for now Pics of what I have and had in mind like I said of what could be the best for a Brand like Funk :)
The Frame is Silver and Black like the fork so the idea was to use the Purple and Turquoise on a 50/50% and to match everything.



So lets start for the Fork and so on...

The Jewel 8)


Image



Just missing the Purple Bar(Looking for an Answer Hyperlite!! :roll: )
Love that Chris King!!


Image



The Rims will be the Mavic 117 SUP CD, black spokes and purple/turquoise Nipples


Image



Tyres arrived today from US :wink:


Image



More NOS parts
The Selle arrived today and yes, that colour was really not what I was expecting so lets see :roll:


Image
Image



Still Looking for Blue or purple brakes :?

I would love to fit a 50/50 Purple/Turquoise Motolite Brakes but only see them on Devil Bay and they dont ship outside US :cry:
Looking for some other options....


Image



Parts for the M900 and others :)


Image



The group will be M900(seen that some guys like others....)


Image



Hope you guys like it and can give me more ideas and opinions ;)
Infos for my missing parts even better please.

Regards

Nuno

As long as the frame isn't neon green, that's going to look sweet.....

Tell me more about that chain....

I take it you are aware of the potential funk suspension fork issues? Other than that loving the blue / purple mix.
