I'm still revelling in 5" of rear travel - having only ridden HT before.
The UFO looks damn good though!

Stripped and rebuilt using some more modern stuff..and a pair of heavyduty wheels.....

Thinking I will be keeping this now...subject to its ridability.

Might eventually swap the shock for a Fox air one...and need to get some decals from Orange to replace the damaged one.

Other than that..I think she is looking mighty swell.

Yeah - like what you've done there!

Does that mean you have a pair of Manitou XVerts looking for a home?? :D

Yep sure does...and all the blue m570 lx stuff..Supercross bars, bonafido stem, and Angry Orange saddle.

Pretty pleased with the build...makes me glad I decided to keep her.

Have swapped out the old shockwave for a NOS 2006 Manitou Metel shock, which performs much better...still think I will have to swallow the cost of a more tunable/adjustable airshock though.

And I have a few other blingy bits to add when finances allow.
