JUST THOUGHT I WOULD POST UP SUM PICS OF MY ALUMINIUM O,

THIS ONE HAS BEEN HANGING AROUND FOR A LONG TIME, AND ALTHOUGH A TITE BUDGET BUILD, I NEEDED TO GET IT FINISHED.

MAINLY XT, WITH A FEW DX BITS THROWN IN WHEN I STRUGGLED TO GET THE XT.

STILL WAITING FOR CORRECT FORK DECALS, AND A BETTER STEM DECAL.

IDEALLY WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS WITH A MANITOU FORK REALLY, BUT AGAIN CANT SEEM TO FIND THE RIGHT CONDITION FORK IN 1" 1/4...

Really nice contrast the white with the black. It's not Jonnyboy666's olf frame is it?

I've got three on the go at the moment, so nice bit of inspiration for me, thanks.

Hey steve, no its not jonnyboys frame, i bought this off the evilbay in 08, for the brakeset that hung off it.

And then boxed it.., but i have been going through an orange phase myself this year, and trying to get through sum of the stuff that has been hanging around for too long, it was very hammered but the seatpost wasnt cracked, and the gear hanger was good, so i painted it, powdercoated the salsa bar it came with, rebuilt the wheels and refinished the rest.

keep us all posted on yours, would be nice to see a build thread on it too..... 8)

Thanks fella, i think from memory the white was available in 92, im unsure tbh the men that would know are the God fathers around these parts, (either Antony or fluffychicken), they would know better than me.... 8)


as for the cast of towie, i think i have recently been tango"ed......lmao... :D

you will do a lot worse than buying an orange mate, big bangs for the buck imo.
