    Cheers, still got a nice set of Ohlins forks collecting dust in the garage that would look sweet on your bike :wink:



    Thanks for all the support everyone. Two thirds finished and well into the last third now. The end is in sight and spring is coming, it'll be nice to get out of my office in the basement and see the light of day again :freaky
