Also it seems more apropriate for the year coz both my 91 Explosif and 92 one have the other concept one,the 89 Explosif has the black and gold double butted prestige sticker. How much mate :)

Finally had some time off work so i could pick the wheels up from M.Steels today. A couple of quick photos of them on the bike and if your wondering why the forks haven't been done yet there could be a twist to the build very soon.

Steels did a good job with the wheels,there building the wheels for 89 Explosif now. As for the forks you'll have to wait :roll: :D

This project ground to halt when i couldn't make my mind up for the forks. Finally after going demented for a couple of months looking for some track two's i've give up on those and whittled it down to these two which i thought would look good in black with the splatter paint on them :) Some Pace Rc30's which have the look of the Track Two's and are a lovely set of forks anyway,i'd just need to swap the steerer for a longer one with threads. And some Orange F7's which i like the design of and they seem to go quite well with the frame,only downside is there from a much later year.
So what do you think,all your opinions are welcome :D
