Nice one Davo! 8)

Looks Sublime! - there's nothing I'd change on that! You've done a really nice build (knew you'd get an "O" eventually!)
That Magura hose detailing into the triple guides is a nice touch.
Remember that '92 brochure picture really well. Now you've got the bike!

Enjoy mate! - spot on!

Looking forward to the updates but as mentioned before...that's looking Spot-on already. 8)

Been messing round with some ideas with my "O" - thing is though, it's a well loved and tried and tested formula (so to speak :wink: ) that I'm reluctant to take apart when it already is spot-on for me.
Perhaps what I've been thinking is more along what I'd have liked to have built BITD, if I'd had the money!
I'll update mine with some more pictures soon... To give a better idea.
What I really need is another 17" series 1 or 2 to try these ideas out on. Think I'll probably start a wanted thread for another as a slow burner and see where that takes me!

Good work Davo! 8)

So finally we have the final version!

Found some MK2 RC30’s with Magura mounts and had to have them as 30’s seem to be my current thing !!
They definitely look better than the 35’s in my mind
She’s nows what id call perfect :wink:
