And this is how it could look once built up.
(I borrowed a few bits from other bikes)

Needs an older fork, but I like the general blue/black theme.
Also, it has a steep top tube angle. Kinda like a trials bike. Weird.

This particular one?!
Tempted to go with a Manitou 3. -Ok, not the lightest fork in the world, but it has the looks.
Either that or maybe a pace.

Yeah, kept going back to the thread and thinking about it. Quite a cool design 8) If I didn't have too much on I'd have made him an offer too. I thought a Lawwill/Control tech or a Amp fork would be just the very cherry. Maybe even a girvan or that quaser thats for sale, somwthing with linkages like the back.

I didn't think it would be for the price. :wink:
Still chuffed though.


And yeah, now you mention it, forks with linkages would also look cool. Just to freak people out even more. :lol:
Will have to see what's about.
What's a Lawwil fork? Can't say I've ever heard of one. Know the Yeti frame though..

I go with Kaiser. A fork with some linkages will do best for the looks, I think.. :)

Lawwil Leader, super cool but reasonably rare. There are a few on the site. I'd love one myself but never been in the right plac eat the right time.
