That is looking awesome Rick. Glad
It's gone to a good home. Wish I could've kept it but when one unicorn turns up after another you gotta make some tough calls. This made room for a IF Ti...

The final piece of this has been sat in customs since the 28th of March. Getting pretty annoyed waiting for it now.

Lovely. Quite simply my favourite bike of all time...remember seeing one when I was about 13, some bloke had one up in and around Surrey hills. Had Manitou 2s and a turquoise Ringle Zooka.

Fair play to you mate it's a stunner.

:D

Hey Rick, looking beautiful. If you ever get CI to build you a BOI I'd like one too, maybe we could get them together and save on shipping!

Now go ride!

Looking great! I reckon a ti king cage or brushed staino middleburn cage would suit it better than the ringle bidon cage though.
