So here we go again :lol: with my latest build iv'e been wanting to build for quite some time but never got round to it was even thinking of selling it at one point, then couple of weeks ago my mate turns up in his new car a Lamborghini gallardo and thought wow i have to build this bike round the style of his lambo :lol: Plus I wanted to build it that way lol

Here is the start to my latest build the Dagger FS

First of all i started stripping the frame of all its decals and removing all it rivet on cable guides and bottle cage bolts ready to think about the colour i was having :D

Second stage was to start thinking about what colours to go for frame paint and anodizing some of the parts cable guides etc

Also the rear shock needed a good service and rear end need greasing cleaning pivot and and fixings :D
