Managed to bolt on a few more parts over the last few days. Needing a few sundries- chain, cassette, brake levers etc. also need to touch up a few chips in the fork and stem and cut the steerer down a tad, but its getting there. I'm liking it so far.... what you guys think?

Looking good!

See what it looks like built with the black fork.

Then paint to match if deemed appropriate by the good doctor.

I tried matched forks- I had a pair of old scrap judys that I hastily splatter paint onto and fitted. It looked better balanced with the black fork, tied in with wheels and seatpost, bars etc. I was supprised that the geek didn't work but there you go.
Hoping to find some tasty black brake levers for it now. Also need canti bosses for the fork before I can get it up and running.

Thanks so far for the following parts.....
Bas for frame and fork
Inigo Montoya for XT post
Drewson for White Rolls
Danielson for White Porcs
Kaiser for brakes
Kingroon for cranks and wheelset
Jezza for the camo green Ringle
Toons for the Hyperlites
Sinnet for front mech
And anyone else who if shamefully have forgotten.

Cheers
Si
