That's very cool. Not sure I'd have picked blue to go on that purple frame, but that's just me being conservative. Looking forward to seeing it finished.

Yep, I can understand your reservations; normally 3DV, Black or silver ano goes with the Milka purple [or even green..] but I want to keep it as close to the Fat catalog/MB test spec. as possible 8)

Have found all the parts, just waiting for a few of them to come thru the postal system and then this weekend/early next week should see complete assembly :twisted:

Looking good! 8)

If you get it built up to discover it's too small I'm sure I can make room for it. :wink:

The Ride
Incredible to have the chance to ride this Beauty, and happy to report that it has lived up to my dreams/expectations; It handles perfectly. Took it for a maiden voyage on the South Downs on Saturday [20 miles or so] with a coupla mates [riding a Maverick and an Orange ST4]. Despite an aggresive front end, it was a comfortable ride and the suspension seemed well balanced :twisted: The fact that it is an M, compared to my Yo's ML, made it easier to throw around the trail without it being too short/low 8)

Many thanks to all the RBers who helped me with parts including Jez, Doug and Bill.. Rock on.. :twisted:
