The DOPE system didn't come along until 2004 I believe.
That would take all the fun out of it. :P

As an update...the bike is ready and will be going on its first outing tomorrow!! Had to take the Shiver off to address a noise so she temporarily has the 888 on. Hoping to get some pics tonight or tomorrow at the latest.
STAND BY!!! :shock:

I've been riding my Norco Sasquatch all winter so this was quite a treat to have some cushion, correction, a lot of cushion for a change.
Had some shifting issues so wasn't really able to get a decent ride.
Will update this weekend. Forecast calling for 80 degrees!!

I'd have to go with the Shiver just for old school cool.
I'm anxious to put it on and see the difference.
My hope is to have the Shiver done by next weekend.

I cant quite remember but didnt the stabs or stinkys have the DOPE system?

May be worth looking into if so.

Lol, I had a sit on a mate's stab that has the DOPE system, might as well be sitting on a fully rigid with the brakes on, the brake arm does nothing!!

Decent looking bike though mate, I like the build. Never seen one of those frames before either, pretty cool.
