Building up the unknown frame

Image Some of you might remember my earlier post seeking to identify this frame. I promised to submit photos of the build up. After the powder coat and a few new bits, here is what it looks like.Image Will post the finished product photos when done. It is for my 11yo son, for when he grows out of his Hillbrick ALU650.

Sorry for the delay- I had to go back to the powder coaters to get the colour- I couldn't remember the name of the colour. It is "Crystal Violet", a powder coat colour. The "Crystal" range has these beautiful metallic fleck colours. I've also got a green one, and a mate has a red one and an emerald one. There are also a burnt orange and a pearlescent white. Here is the green bike.Image
