Is it just me?

I see something like that and I want to cry, there is one of my dream frames in a size I could use and it looks like it's been built to hang on a wall as some kind of history piece :roll:

Put decent working components on it and ragg round a forest for a few hours, yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay :D

But seriosly, I'm jealous... that is an amazing build :wink:

Pretty Merlin.
That front brake setup looks a little bit odd though.
I'd use this instead:

:lol:

Maybe the front brake lever is some kind of pre-load adjuster for the shocks :roll:

i think its a retro fork lockout while braking type affair... :wink:

nice looking bike though!!

not too keen on the wheels / tyres though..

spinergys are a bit marmite like i think!
