Killer Deal on a new frame/misc. parts

My co-worker bought a new XC frame and he and I swapped out the components from his other bike. As we were doing this, he offered me a killer deal on his remaining parts that I couldn't pass up.

He bought this bike per my suggestion for the parts anyways since it was on close-out and cost less as a complete bike than the individual components would've cost.

So, I'm the proud owner of a K2 Brass Monkey frame, Race Face cranks & BB, Titec post and saddle. Disc wheelset w/XT hubs (don't know the rims- forgot to look), and XT front and rear derailleur. So, for the cost of a Chris King headset (I had an extra) and $150.00, all I need is a fork, stem, bar, brakes and shifters, I'll have another killer little DJ bike.

Unless someone wants to make me an offer?!!! kidding (kinda)

What I'll probably end up doing is building it up with some spare parts. I might make it a single speed to forego the shifters. But I still need some brakes. Since I have some Vee brake levers, I may go with some Avid Mechanicals.
