Very nice build.

But for the love of God, cant we get a picture that doesn't look like it was taken underwater?

I'm sorry, but there's been a run of pretty bikes lately ruined by bad pictures.

very nice :D
minor gripe? if you're going for a blue build get some new blue decals, would finish it off perfectly :)
(besides the seattube decal is wrong, thats a mass decal, it should be "the glory, not the prey")

Bill, nowt wrong with that IMHO :D
Wow, you really got motoring with that build, did you have the parts set aside, then bagged the frame?
Q: what size is the frame?
are you sure it's a 97 cos i'm hedging 99, but that's based soley on the red decals, but as mike has mentioned before, decals could be a customer spec option.
nice bike, enjoy.
