AL did you pass out or something with all the mmmm!!?

glad some like it took a bit of time to decide what to put on it but seeing a set of dt forks made my mind up on that front, thanks for link on rear disc brake mount thought it would be better with rear disc, going to get a different seatpost just $ exchange rates rubbish so will wait for a bit on that. caint waite to ride it now :D

It looks like it could be very very very flexy indeed, bet if you stand on the bb you can push the chain stay onto the tyre? what was the charge for the rear disc mount?

If that rides as good as it looks then it is an engineering masterpiece.
One of the few bikes i wouldn't have a second thought about owning.

Build it quick and ride it! Life's too short and all that :)

Hi There can I ask how it rides I've never seen one in flesh I think there were 250 worldwide I've read you can fit discs and pro pedal shocks looks like you've done that already, Steve Potts still makes them if your willing to pay.


Absolutely lush for me I'd swap my YYB for it!


Might have to keep some parts lol

Hear's mine for what it's worth I'd do the same that's kinda the point it was before time and the modern parts make up for that old 90's CNC and forks cracking in half.... forged parts all the way.
