Picked up this gem from SteveK last night, I hate to see grown men cry but rest assured it is in good hands :)

Shes a 1997 King Kahuna in exceptional shape, 19" frame.

Forks are going to be courtesy of RAFBIKES, some nice RC30's.

The build is mainly going to be XTR M95* series, some Kooka, Ringle, X Lite, Flite and Mavic wheels will complete things.

Will post more photos as build continues, should be ready to ride by next weekend 8)

Hope you like????

Very nice but I think the forks are too short? Love the white Rons! Where from?

The forks are only for photo purposes, RC30s will be on tomorrow :)

The Evos were not easy to come by, but managed to pick up a few pairs from a Scott sponsored rider 8)

I do like the look of the forks you've got on there at the moment.

A small matter but I think it's a 1998 frame. The decals certainly are 98, the cable routing is 98-style, I think the top tube is 98-style. Not a big deal though.
