So - despite not getting that far with my Giant MCM DH 990 build, I find myself shelling out a load of cash in order to get hold of a boyhood unicorn.

Spotted that man!

Already at Bob Jacksons for a respray and slight repairs. 'fraid it'll be the classic Black & White - but that colour scheme is sooo nice!

No Roberts fork, so it'll be an RC35.

Ditto that man ^^

I like the suggestion of making it a "special" but as you say Alec, black'n'white is so nice! 8)

Can't wait to see it finished - even if it'll be a slow build!
