That looks very nice, well done! We have a very similar taste in fact, quite a few of those components are working their way onto one or two of my slow burner projects.

What does it ride like?

Thanks. I know, I bolted it on before work to take the pictures. Going out to the garage now to adjust it.

Thank you. I had been saving these components for either a Merlin or a Yeti. Since I will never find a XL Yeti...
It is a funky ride. The forks are super flexy, especially with my fat arse riding it, but it is solid. I went on a ride tonight and really enjoyed the ride. It is a keeper for sure. :D

Thanks. The Graftons work great, but are too powerful for the IRD forks. Hard braking causes major flexing.
I got the hangers from racer x. They are not only good looking, but might be the best I have used. I am glad I got two pairs.
