some new pics, not the best quality, getting this set up has proved to be a pain! bb is too short, rings are shot, and forks need a service and waiting for rocker parts...

Ah, ha, my old frame pops up again, must have had three owners in a year :lol:

Look's good though, better than when i had it (though i was learning)

I originaly bought it off E-bay, sellers pics were dated 2004, i think it was painted then and unused, i just re-stickered it and polished it a lot :lol:

Dont know who painted it but it's a cracking job, it does ride fantastic, i used it as my main bike for a whole year, still dont know why i stripped it and sold it, think i was tempted by too much other stuff on here :D, bought another 91 so i must have liked it a lot :lol:

This bike really does ride great. I must admit that if a 19" Clockwork or Prestige came around i'd be very, very tempted to buy it. Great stuff so far, goes to show you don't need M900 to create a truely beautiful build.

Nice job crud 8)
The atac does work well, wouldn't have thought so before, but now seeing it looks right.
Now get those cables sorted and go and ride it!
