A sneeky pic of one I'm almost finished..

I've Tricked out with a whole lot of modern stuff

08 X.0 Rear 08 XT front, XTR wheels, XTR & Avid Sl Ti brakes USE alien post, raceFace Turbines.... and other new stuff gracing the what is a fantastic piece of retro history.. Sorry to the purists out there that think all should be as was.. I just can't help myself!(SORRY)

All rust old bolts and things replaced with Ti... spent a bloody fortune... but I love it!!

I Know its a marmite bike.. some think they are ugly.. some moan that the suspension idea can't work..

I just smile every time I see it.. and it's a frothy one!

Well there's not many around!

I've never seen another one in the flesh.... have you?

By the sounds of it a lot of these older bikes rusted like mad around all the pivot points because of the bolts used.. all mine were rusty so got removed and replaced with titanium.
