Not BOD material with only 2 pictures and essentially no parts listed. Used SA parts.... like what? This is a weak post.

not listing parts, not mentioning the shop and 2 photos is a crap job of showing off if thats the case here. I'm genuinely interest in whats made in other countries, off the radar parts are cool. This is just a bummer BOD. Some BODs i spend a good amount of time analyzing and drooling. this one just makes me say, "NEXT!"

Ain't no shop bros - it's my personal build, and I've been abusing it for a year now - the bike deserves the show-off because it's so damn good to ride, that's all. Parts weren't showing earlier but hopefully they are now. @loganskis if you're interested in off the radar stuff then what's being developed here is genuinely good - look up South Industries for high-end carbon rims (handmade in Cape Town by ex-aerospace engineer), C-Sixx do a bunch of different goodies with their CNC machines here in CT, and Lyne Components are designed here but made overseas for a more mid-level pricepoint. Don't know why they chose it for BOD when it wasn't displaying all the components properly - that wasn't my choice! This photo was taken last year, but now everything is looking worn and battered, hence no extra photos. Peace out, happy riding!
