Looks good, I think you may need to replace the elastomers? front end looks a tad low at moment, how does it ride?

Nice looking bike, but I always thought the Girvins looked better on a Proflex. The front looks a little low, I'm sure the top tube should angle upwards more that the pic shows; but if it rides well who cares!!!.

Actually i like the ride. This is what it used to look like before i stripped it and used another elastomer and plastic spacer off my other vector forks.

Before.
