Anyways, I received the wheels and the fork. The fork is in remarkably really good condition they are a set of Marzocchi 1998 Bombers. After figuring out how the headset actually works I decided to fit in the crown race which I though I did not not have. After 10-15 minutes of research and another 10 minutes of fixing this is what I have.

|If you notice there is a half inch gap from the headset to the clamp, I need spacers.|

I I would like to apologize for the bad quality of the images, my digital camera just broke and I used my iPhone 4 to take these pictures at the best resolution I could. I don't want to have to cut the steerer tube, then I would have to install the star nut. Also would these spacers fit? FSA Spacer Carbon
Here are the wheels that I have acquired, they are brand new.

Do take note the Cassette is not fixed in yet (I haven't ordered the tools yet)
The build is coming along really well so far, I just have to put in the order for the bottom bracket, tools and cranks this Wednesday. I really want to finish this build ASAP and start riding.
I'm planning to go down to my local LBS- YarraValleyCycles and get the tubes, tyre's, and brake pads sometime this week too.
Well thats all for now..
But before I end this post I would like to give a Special Thanks to :
Bentnose from BicycleNetworkAustralia , for donating his 1998 Marzocchi Bomber's to my build.
I would also like to thank MTB Wannabe from Rotorburn forums for the wheel set.
