Nice find there. The alloy Lobo's are pretty tasty.
If this is a 'keeper' then I suggest you start sourcing some spare parts NOW. For starters get a spare shockhttp://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ROCKSHOX-GT-LOBO- ... 35aa146ee5
Far cheaper than a rebuild, and they are going to become pretty scarce. Without this shock the bike is a non rider.
Try and source linkage / bearing spares. There are a few sources on the Net. Here's onehttp://www.benscycle.net/index.php?main ... yword=lobo
You can get some nice reproduction decals on here via our own decal guru gil_m. Give him a PM I'm sure he can sort you out. Will make a massive difference in how the bike looks.
He may also be able to produce a new set of decals for those Boxxers as well.
Here's what the headtube decal for it should like and also a reproduced decal set for the earlier STS version.
I also have a full owners manual on file which I can send you're way if required. This bike is perfect for adding some BLING. Enjoy
yeah ive got a shock on my wish list shock and bookmarked that site for the bushes, i should be ok for now as it came with a few spares. the rear end is still super stiff with no play in it...yet..
ive been looking al over for a pic of a polished lobo to get a idea of what the decals looked like.
found this one.
very similar to the STS decals but with Lobo 1000 DH in place.
so im on the hunt for some of them, im quite handy with photoshop, so if its ok with you Gadro, i could just modify the decals you made for your STS. and ill give gil_m. a PM..
oh and this VERY much a keeper...and is even more polished than before.
