Coming along nicely - I think the silver bombers look really good - and as do the white rigid

Cheers, I’m leaning towards the chrome/blue forks - only because I really want this to be a hardtail.
And the worlds end - yes that sign came out of an empty shop I was fitting out 15-20 years ago. Back when I was working for my father in law, there were two signs and we had one each rather than skip them, his is hanging in his garage in Norfolk now.

Looking good man! What’s the weight and year of the forks?

Re:

The forks are stamped 98 and are Z2 Bombers, I think sort of mid range forks from Marzocchi at the time. Not sure on weight - I don’t have accurate scales in the workshop. Not the lightest things for sure - but not as hefty as they might look and they’re hella plush too. :)

Ready, steady, build! Ironic that the parts which I originally bought the bike for (to go on something else) are going back on it..

Re:

She’s up and together and looking FIT!
I may change a few bits here and there as and when other parts pop up - but basically it’s now got the look that I was going for.
Had to rob a couple of parts off other bikes to get it assembled so next job is to re-assemble those.. :)

That’s looking sweet - nicely matched and elegant - it also looks very light!
