Hey...just bought this...usual story, always wanted one since blah blah blah.

It has the following 'wrong' components: Bars, bar ends, stem, headset, seat, forks, pedals and skewers...plus it should be bare polished alu (see pic 2)

My question is...what forks??? The obvious choice would be Syncros Powerlites but I ain't getting any younger and i'm not sure I want a bone shaking rigid..... :? :? :? :?

nice project Neil - definately needs some lovin'. Those forks are just so wrong!

I agree with Lid - strip the paint off and throw loads of black Syncros kit at it.

Oh and Jez - black cranks/black rings 8)

Great minds think alike :wink:

ok...the post is already Syncros but suffered a 'fatal wound' during transit, I have a black Cattleprod on my RC200 that is coming off (cos im going Ahead/CattleHead on that)...I have a few sets of Syncros Revolutions 'in stock' so one set are kinda earmarked for this already...black Syncros bars...Hmmm theres a problem....fork wise I was possibly thinking early Rock Shox....maybe????
