  1. This was the pic I had in mind when I started the build. Now sadly parted out but I'm glad I was able to get it done. On to the next build I guess
  2. Are there any discussions or any news on getting the feedback fixed? I had a chat with Marty a some time back and understand what happened but I just wondered what the latest was on getting things resolved? It's probably not a big deal to most but being an overseas member, I took a lot of time and care on my sales and it's useful to point new people I deal with towards this site to check out my reputation. It just doesn't look so great now with all the neutrals If there's chat somewhere on it, can someone pls put up the link? Cheers, Paul

  4. Be good to see that catalogue spec jimmy boy :icon_tup: Any chance of putting up some pics? So what's the story? Are you planning to build them or are they for sale?
  5. Pics of a Rapier cropped up on the RB FB Group recently. Thought they would make a good addition to this thread:
  6. Hey, thanks for the kind words lads I always had white forks in mind for the build and they lent themselves to being powdered. I don't mind mixing it up a bit plus they came with the frame when I bought it.
