I picked up a DS-1 late last year off this website and it was a black one, I never really did like the black ones and used to have a silver one when I was 17 (back in 99) :lol:

....so, out came the nitromorse, wire wool, stanley knife and autosol 8)

about 14 hours later, she has a new lease of life!!! :D

looks much better hey? Im going to build it up with a mixture of fairly modern stuff and a few older bits, it is going to be like a trail bike with a full set of gears :wink: aiming to go for an all silver/black/grey colour scheme, maybe a little bit of red here and there...

this was it when it arrived...

this is how it looks now 8)

and these are the forks I'm using

Would be cool to see a Jared Rando period build.

Careful, the headtubes on these tended to fall off...

It was in 2 pieces after that!!! I'm not going to hammer this bike too hard :lol:

Aussie World Cup racer. Silver Z.1s, Profile cranks, Rhynolites?, MRP?, might have had v-brakes... I assume it was his DS bike, but it's better known as his street/dirt jump bike in a few videos from around that time.
