Hold on, you added the stem with the noodle and then didn’t use the noodle?!

;)

Bike looks and is amazing @regan_ev. Well done and massive congrats. Nice to hear you received a shed load of deserved appreciation for it, too!

The matching helmet was a nice touch!
Cheers. Got it NOS from US ebay. Then I painstakingly redrew all the graphics and cut them from vinyl (using plotter, not by hand!) to get a team-style Troy Lee lid. My friend Aaron Faust still has his original from riding on Team Yeti as a trials rider, so I took photos when I visited to get the sizing and placement as accurate as I could. I decided to add the classic TLD feathers (also drawn and cut from vinyl) opposed to the full team decorations.

Just a little 😅 Stress induced insomnia means lots of RB time. Plus I really needed to remind myself of what exactly I did with this build as I wasn’t sure if certain things when people were asking at Malverns. I think I spouted a few untruths in regaling certain folk of the history of this build and the entire history. Now I’m re-educated and hopefully I’ll remember correctly whoever I’m quizzed in future!

Cheers to all for the love. Means a lot. I just wish Beachy would post about how shlt the whole C-26 project was - in his utterly wrong opinion 😂😘

It seems I neglected to post the top 10 “winners’” rosette photo. Not taken it off yet. Haven’t even cleaned the bike. I’m pleased that after re-reading the whole thread I have hopefully satisfied those who said it must be ridden but to whom I previously stated I wouldn’t. And it didn’t break! So much fun too. Win win. ✌️
