Really top work, not always a fan of purple bits but yours go brilliantly with the frame.

Nice one 8)

If you were a pimp looking to tackle a bit of trail (maybe it happens?)... There is no question that this the right machine

And I mean that in a good way... A dazzling bling-fest, which is very appealing!

That bottle cage reminds me of the chainlink steering wheels on old school lowriders :D

Chain turned up today,

Couldn't be bothered to take pics today, too hot, and it's a chain - I think we all know what an HG50 chain looks like :lol:

So, apart from some purple barends from Canada, I think this is basically now complete... 8)

Ready for it's first showing @ mayhem in a few weeks....

A few final bits urned up over the ast couple of days, so now the rain's stopped for a minute, I got out there, got them fitted and some pics snapped.

Added components - Hyperlites, Controltech barends, Purple chainrings, XTR Front Mech..

FINISHED (apart from purple chainring bolts):
