Thanks for all your comments guys!

It is the white one from ebay and yes I do have some pictures of pre and during restoration. Only I can't find them :oops:

I wanted to use use Yeti colours but do something different. It worked out okay.

I agree on levers and seatpost comments. It needs an XT post and black Grafton levers to be 100% perfect IMO.

Oh, and Ameybrook. You can be my wingman! :lol:

It wasn't always this way...! Hats off to both the vision and the execution - we're probably looking at BoTY 2008 right now...
