I dont wanna seem like a git, but I think you should get a silver seatpost and stem, some retro cranks (shimano Lx/Xt'd do) and some amberwall tyres... Go a bit OEM like... (mind you, look at what I build...)

thas a right nice machine tho, proper early full sus... How much travel's she got???

I would, if it were mine that is?
1 Respray in PC nice bright colour or Satin Black?
2 Lose some weight, better wheels, shorter caged mech, don't need a long with a 12-28, lighter stem.
3 Flat but widish swept bars
4 Better lighter tyres
5 replace all bolts with Titanium and aluminium
6 Decent light chainset needs a Race Face Turbine
7 Better brake set and levers
