That is just gorgeous. Replicating the MBA test bike was a perspicacious choice. Very nice work!

Thanks mate 8) The bars aren't correct but other than that I've stuck as close to the spec as practicality would allow.. Final Cockpit additions should be here this week :wink:

It doesn't weigh a lot.. :twisted:

War & Peace didn't take this long to complete..

Still going.. Need some chainrings [M900 pref. NOS if you have em] and some AMP rear end canti studs/posts..

Sprayed the forks up myself using an exact Pantone/BS match from Argos, but it seems there's a little variation - it's a touch darker.. Not too bothered with it as the alternative to getting the Mags sprayed by Argos was looking at a rather hefty £150 bill [courier > dismantling > spray/bake > reassembly > courier]..
