got this off stocko today, met him outside royce engineering (he has friends in high places it would seem! :D )

the plan at the moment is to build this race style from back in the day

i have some mag 20's that are mint and i'm thinking of ripping all the m900 xtr off my explosif and going mad with polishing equipment then building it with syncros,use etc. that's my thoughts for the moment so i'll see what else comes to mind.

and before you ask, the kona isn't going anywhere, i'm gonna (sorry for this) modernise it a little, only v brakes and spinergy wheels, maybe a little more, we'll see!

anyway, here's a pic of the new (to me) frame! :D

looks great.My son had an e3 up until early this year when someone else decided they liked it more. guard it well , it was sooo nice to ride it just wanted to go faster all the time, and handled like a dream. replaced it with an old zaskar but he still yearns for orange. cant wait to see it finished.

They ran from 95-98 i think, mine is a later one without the canti bridge, not sure of the exact year though, it is a very nice frame, they ride superb, very light and responsive, doubt i'll ever part with mine.

up date so far! :D

fitted an XT 1" headset and some rockshox mag 20 forks which have been painted and rebuilt. the wheels are from my explosif which are m900 hubs on sun rims but i might re rim the wheels as the sun rims are a bit too wide for my liking. also has m900 xtr brakes and STI.

gonna use my middleburn cranks from my aluminium O i think but haven't decided yet, also i have some hope/217 wheels on the way so i might use those aswel, we'll see.

here's acouple of pics. :D
