    Morati Ti cranks

    Thought you guy's might enjoy some picture's of my crank's. They are Morati Ti crank's painted with HOK kameleon paint. The bash guard and chain ring are both carbon fiber. In the bash guard is engraved KU'U 'ANELA O NA KILAKILA MAUNA. The second apostrophe in 'ANELA and the O are real emerald's. The O is 3/4's of a carat. The first apostrophe in KU'U will be a orange sapphire. Just a little extra bling. The bolt's are alloy and I will be changing them to purple instead of green.

    The chainring is carbonfiber? That doesnt sound very effective.
    What does that translate to and Ide like to see the rest of the bike!

    Makes nice wall art but the cranks are fragile anyway, who cares who quickly the bash guard dies...its not like these things are likely to ever see dirt.

    Won't you be afraid to whack something with that bashring for fear of losing the gem stones? I have enough trouble worrying about my XTR cranks with the $230 big chainring.

    Didn't Jaguar have some promotion with a $250,000 diamond on the nose of the F1 car at Monaco only to have it go missing during the race because of some contact?

    Gorgeous!!!! I always wanted those cranks but I settled for Sweetwings.
    I got some pretty decent Niners!

    I've been using a very light carbon bash for a couple years now, it is surprisingly durable. I don't understand why people always think carbon is going to explode the second you touch it.

    Its not the bashring i'd be worrying over but the crankarms... i've seen them peel apart under rather light riders.

    Even if it never gets ridden, looks pretty damn sweet.

    DeeEight is right about the crank's. They do have a reputation for breaking but when they do I'll throw the other set on. I'm sure some will say this bike is just a piece of art. I don't think so, it is going to be ridden. I didn't spend all this money just to look at it and say 'boy does it look sweet'. I just dropped the frame off today to get the headset pressed in and the fork mounted. So maybe 2-3 more week's and she'll be done. For those who have not seen the frame and other part's here ya go.

    That's all sort of crazy mad, in a genius sort of a way! Nice looking bike - be great to see it all together... Now you won't see another one of them on the trails : ) Thanks for posting the pics.

    Is that a morati m-bar in the pic?

    Nice build with some quality parts.
    I always wanted an m-bar to go with my sunn (morati hc 1.3) frame & forks.
    Missed out through my local importer when morati closed up shop.

    soooo want an m-bar

    Yes I really want to get an m-bar.
    Have had my sunn ti frame since 2000 & morati forks since 2001.
    The m-bar would just set the bike off. Not keen on the cranks I'm too heavy for them, my custom ti chain rings are cool though.

    Update

    This is what she looks like now. As is she is about 12.75 lbs. When done I'm guessing no more than 15.5 lbs.

    Wow, that looks stunning! I love the color coordination! What's the rest of the build look like? Have you decided parts?

    Just put on my brakes so this is what shes looking like now. I have to shorten the cable housing a bit but for now its fine. Shes roughly 14lbs as is.

    Why are the cranks on the non drive side? The freehub is on the correct side though...
