Liking the look of this one!

My AMP (no longer mine) had fluorescent Gore cables which suited it well in my opinion.

Looking forward to completion :D

Decals are on the rest of the frame / stem :)
Looking pretty decent. Think it might be ready for clearcoating :)

8) Best project on RB for months... years!

This is so inspiring :D

(a black XTII group would be a nice contrast)

Im having issues with the decals, since they dont seem to stick properly, I think its due to the matt finish of the paint. might have to go with 1 clear coat, decals then a final clear coat.

Also the Decals i printed were printed on clear film so the blue in the mongoose logo came out yellow. Ive sent Gil an email to see if he can print them better than me :)

Handlebar grips will be black, same as my rims and tires. Im thinking about getting some turquoise anodized bolts for the crankset as well as skewers for the wheels. Maybe a matching H2O bottle holder but i dont want to go overboard with anodized stuff. No need looking like a christmas tree... (more like a safety vest instead..)

My dream Group set for it would be the dark XTR M950. Just a shame how ugly the crank arms get when they are properly used.
