That's pretty :) If you fancied parting with those bars I could give them a very good home.

Look forward to seeing this progress.

That Turbo is sweet and agree those RS1 pink decals and ODI grips will be the icing on the cake ;)

Hope to hear re the bars but if you need them no worry.

My own Merlin is a bit more plain. If you haven't ridden one before your in for a treat, beautiful riding frame!
