That is very nice indeed Chris and has given me the push I needed to put M900 on my identical year and size Merlin.

Glad you can't decide on forks either, thought it was just me being picky. Using some early 1in Sids at the moment, but keep considering a straight blade rigid.

I sold some Pace RC30's which were on it (another idea for you maybe) looked a bit too shiny for my liking and rattled my teeth to bits as well

Would be very interested to see another pic if you do try P2's, reckon they could be just the job

Don't worry though because it looks great anyway

Yeah, me too.

Lovely build that Chris, looks so right as is, but curious to see the Bontys. If going suss I'd go leftfield and put either McMahon's on it or go really mad and fit Lawwill Leaders. There was a Hei on here with Lawwills that looked cool as! It sure would be a first for a Merlin.
