Impressive. I'm glad you went with the Grafton cranks, I must admit to cringing a little when you mentioned the mismatched STX/LX arms!

The colours (much to my surprise) actually work really well, even the purple stem clamp cap thingy! ;)

This why I love this place. Eveywhere I look there is more inspiration for my own builds 8)

Thanx mate 8) i was joking about the STX Cranks to distract from the finished build spec :lol:

I was also very surprised as well mate about the colour and how it turned out :roll: 8) only thing to do is just see what that Flite looks like as that was post to be part of this bike the Vetta SL saddle was a after thought as its sharp edged looking like the angles of his car 8)

That's drop dead gorgeous :shock: 8)

If I have to criticise it though, I have to ask why on earth you went for the carbon Judy brace over the colour-matched one? I think it looks terrible :oops:

That's my own personal thing though - the rest of the bike is an absolute sight to behold and all credit to you :D

Thanx mate its turn out really well 8) the carbon brace was added as there was loads of carbon all over his car :D so i tried to add as much as i dare and not go to over the top, the other brace i had that colour coded with the forks to keep it all together :D

Think what i will do is take another couple of photos when i add that recovered Flite i will pop on the other brace and we can see what it looks like :D i like the carbon shock bone but am also wanting to see what the other green one looks like 8)

I'm waiting for the lambo head badge decal :lol: that should tie it all in and one Easton badge decal, also i did think about taking them decals off the carbon shock bone but thought no better keep them one :lol:
