New project has just arrived!
The plan is for full M735 that im taking off another bike that will be sold.
This one is going to be a winter bike as I hate taking my other 5.5 out in bad weather.

Looks nice, what tubing is it?

Shiny XT will look great on that frame being black

I should know, I have two black Scotts with XT.

Looking forward to seeing it progress

Mike

Ive made a bit of progress, bars and controls fitted. The stem will be changed to one thats shorter with more rise.
Most of the m735 groupset is on, the top pull front mech is on its way from giom.

Still gutted the one I was rescuing for my brother had a rotten chain stay. Seem to hold water due to design but such cool frames.
