Very inspiring, especially that you're working without a mentor/guide. Passion and determination can make up for a lot and it looks like you have both. Mad props on you young man. I would pass on the `maro rear or you'll have mix matched wheel bolt patterns. OK I guess, if you plan to run big & littles and fix-a-flat instead of a spare. Posi, new, and hiway 2.73's are a plus though. That frame looks toast.
