Someone brought this to a car show that I'm attending this weekend in Florida, so I thought I'd share it with the RB crowd.

Not an MTB, but definitely retro, and from the looks of it, damn near NOS.

Enjoy!

Yes, a golf course.

Friday and Saturday are open to the public, and those are the best days to take unobstructed photos, but not a lot of cars show up until Sunday morning, the day of the show. By Sunday, it's a $70 admission fee, and a sea of humanity, and I'll be lucky to get any unobstucted photos unless I'm very patient (or rude :P :lol: ).

If I see the owner today I'll ask him about it. Anyone else have questions, let me know and I'll try to find out today sooner or later.
Also, any other pics you'd like to see, just lmk and I can post them later tonight.

That really is lovely and just oozes class and style,,,The attention to detail is amazing,,the difference between making a "product" and making something you would be very proud of,a labour of love I think. one of the reasons some of us are "here" is a passion for simplicity combined with style, this lovely creation ticks all my boxes. Thank you so much for sharing and do a bit of old school V8 lusting for me please :D
Mark.
