Sweet man, looks great. Looks like the o-ring for the rear shock is a mm too big as its squeezing out. . . Having been there, be careful, next big hit and you'll only know its decnated its huts when the rear brake doesn't work. And bit hits usually coincide with going downhill at the time. .

Nice to see the use of the boulder quick-adjust brake design too. Weapon of choice for a boulder :-)

White is cool :-)

To bad you broke it, but look what became of it!
This looks so much better than the green!

It looks very nice in white.

Make me think that I may change my Starship to white when I give it a new powercoat.

Thanks guys! :wink:

First ride update... rear oil seal sorted, but broken one of the rear Canti's- usual onza crack. Forks are also too short in the travel for the rear too. So, I know its not period, but for riding its going to get a colour matched Judy DH with speed springs. I just need a 1 1/8" steerer and crown as i have some 1" Judy DH ready to go on.

Hoping to have it ready for Innerleithen with MacRetro on the 12th.

Si
