Hey guys,
Thought I’d share my small collection of mid/late 90s Downhillers.
These were some of my absolute dream bikes back then...
I’ve been collecting parts for years and finally finished the last two bikes last month.
Sadly I’m already thinking about selling some of them :facepalm: need some space and and could use the money;)...well, we’ll see...

But for now, enjoy 8)

Nice! The Yeti is gorgeous but I've a soft spot for the super-eight as well. Great collection.

Thanks!
Yeah, the Yeti is almost a little bit too much;)
Personally I like the Super8 the most.
Cheers

8) Nice collection.

Yeah, super 8, pretty strong bike, but that Hot Chili Warp 210 is amazing. Always wanted to try one, still got a poster of it somewhere 8)

Great collection, very nice builds!
I always had a weak spot for late 90's DH, but never pulled the trigger.
I'm wondering, do you ride them? A retro hardtail is very ridable on most modern tracks, but were would you use a retro DH?

Don't feel bad about selling them on, the only one you should keep is the one you ride. All the rest are your hobby, searching for the parts and building them up.

Thanks for sharing.
