Its not even half finished! sorry to be un creative but that still needs time and money all i see is a frame, a half finished rear wheel frame and half sprayed forks sorry!

Well, if you just took time reading what i wrote its pics of the project.. Dont know about you but i dont get my bikes ready over a weekend... I like doing it from scratch.. Lets see what you can do and if you can do it better shall we? ^_^

Thanks for the comment :) ..Yes it is a scewer.. but i dont know how the setup will be when its finished, maybe im getting new hubs.. Im thinking about black or white, both colours looks good with green monty stickers ;)

I like it good job so far and i thing dark grey/black would look great ;)

Oggy

Thanks,Yeah i think it will be all black :)

looks good so far mate,it will soon look like alot more has been done when you get it sprayed.

when i built my bmx from scratch it felt like it was taking ages and you start to get bored and wonder where all your money is going (N) , but when you get it sprayed you want to get it done again and really want to ride it ;) .

just keep at it.

just about to start my trials bike (it will be built from scratch and finished for the summer)

Yeah i know how it is (: you get bored pretty easy when its just the boring things to do.. but when you get to the fun parts like the painting and putting all new parts together you get new strength and really want to see it finished (: My goal is to have it ready for late spring (: Good luck with your projects to mate..

Thanks for the comments! (:

I've taken some time, and i'll have a go at translating this into proper english for you all

"you are in year 9 are you not? which bike did you say you own?"

It's not perfect, but it's the best i can do ^_^

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in Sweeden you ride with the rear brake on the right hand side of the bar, the opposite to us brits. Noticed your smileys ( (: ) are also the other way round to the british ones! ( :) )

How strange!

The frame's looking good by the way, looks like you've done a decent job of painting it (Y)

Hello

Thats quite a nice project you have got there, How much do you think you will spend in the end when the bike is finished and ready to ride? Are those Monty wheels new because they look it.

Anyways it looks good so far especially now the frame has been sprayed over (Y)

Cheers joe

Thank you (: .. I think about 6500 swedish crowns as it is now with only one rearbrake and som original parts.. i bought it quite shitty for 2800 swedish crowns and i bought the wheels (221) new from the swedish Monty dealers for 1900 crowns... So about 500 British pounds to get it ready.. not so much i guess (:

Yeah the last guy who had it painted it with soft yellow housepaint.. what an idiot (:

Thanks for all the positive comments guys! Will update ass soon as i get the remaining parts.. Cheers
