I know mate that was one hell of a bike its in bits now :lol: i was shocked at how nice it turned out was going to go purple on the cranks but liked it with silver looked stunning on a sunny day :D

Here is some more i'm thinking about doing to my flite saddle i brought on here with some damage to it original cover, i'm thinking about a recover to match the seats and dash of the lambo in suede

Also though have a nice Vetta SL titanium saddle that i'm toying with that looks very sharp angled looking :wink:

I have a Dagger, stored away in a closet. It was my first FS.. loved it. Maybe someday, I will put it back together. One question... how do refasten the cable guides?

Will be watching.. can't wait to see the finished build.

I never liked the un painted amps that were about at the time.They were dead lite though and everybody raced them bitd and i think thats the reason why i liked the Dagger so much.

Their used to that double page advert (cambria i think) in mba selling the dagger and other pricey framesets at the time.

It was like a wank mag at the time :lol: :lol:
