Real liking it, always had a soft spot for Merlins and AMP, in my eyes it'd look perfect with black wall tyres like porcupines

Looks good, I remember having those forks on mine years ago, they were the same as on the Mongoose Amplifier. The caliper mounts snapped and I eventually bought F3 Carbons. Will load some pictures shortly.

Many thanks for all the comments folks, I'm very happy with her. :D

The fork remains untested so far but it clears the frame by about 5 mm. I do need to rework the cables a bit to stop them rubbing.
I just had a quick look for some evidence of seat-post binder braze ons and there's not a trace.

I'll take some more pics when the sun shines; I added a Carbon Flite that looks pretty nice on it. 8)

Cheers!

Aha, I'd never see one without the braze ons, maybe a custom order like the u-brake mounts on seatstays.

Cheers
