Had this for a while and just got it back from a refurb :D

The paint is flawless and was worth every pound i spent on it.

I think these frames are quite rare and the workmanship is up there with

the other great 90's builders..

A pair of Manitou 3/4 forks is on the agenda, IF ia can find a MINT pair :roll:

Yep, think this is either a CRO-MAG or a F-16 steel. :!:

Kinda rare, and so well put together.

I have some nice Kent parts for it, but i havent decided if im keeping it or

Very Very Cool-
The paintjob rocks- I would never have picked it out myself- but it look so right- I have always loved Clark Kent graphics too.#

Where did you get it?
