29/12/2015 Another image of the bike standing still... 
Anodised black gloss with  custom decals. FOX 40 RC2 on front bought from England.
Full serviced with BelRay 5W fork oil, changed preload spring with Honda XLV's progressive spring and internal spacers, painted semi-gloss black.
Steerer cut to ~120mm for proper install of Burgtec Stanchion upper crown. A closer look on the bike's cockpit.
Love the preload & rebound adjusters, the Nukeproof headset but also the blue silicon fork bumpers mounted on the frame's upper tube!!! Banshee logo on the headtube...
Cranbrothers Sage 2 780mm handlebar with ODI AG1 grips rock!!!
Shimano Zee brakes with 4 piston calipes provide plenty of stopping power while Saint shifter rapid fires the gears from 1st all the way up to 10th.
FOX DHX RC4 Kashima 2015 bought new and custom modified on lathe for proper fitment on the bike's frame.
Length 222mm and travel 76mm, full adjustable with Marzocchi 450lbs spring. The crankset is also modified as its the version with 83mm bottom bracket, not the 68/73mm bottom bracket that the frame supports!!!
For this reason, 2 custom spacers were made, 1 on eash side of the bottom bracket, in order to get the right length and position of the cran arms.
Then, Saint pedals were installed and ready to ride... Shimano XTR RT98 Ice Tech 203mm rotor on the front with Hope mount adaptor for the caliper.
It endos for fun!!! Shimano XT-Saint RT81 Ice-Tech 160mm rotor on the rear wheel with the mount adaptor for the caliper.
The rear axle is an interesting stroy...
It came from a Suzuki Hayabusa (the bolts that mount the engine on the frame), it was cut to the proper length, made thread 12x1.75 and designed a 6mm allen key shape on the head!!! Saint hubs with the 10speed cassette and the Shimano Zee derailleur.
Custom decals on the inside of the rear triangle. Custom project by DBK performance
