so many years ago i owned a sts lobo and didcided it was time to own one again
so after a few months of looking and seeing what they were selling for
i was lucky to get me a medium frame in good cond . . . . . its still in my mates shed tho so
figured id start getting some parts to build it up and thats when i came across this frame
a nice small nos lobo 1000 which i quickly bought

so now the one bike has grown into 2 bike already . . . . didn't take long

im going to (hopefully) build the sts back up as original as i can

same with the 1000 but out of nos/shop soiled parts
.. . . which is a dilemma in its self do i build it up or keep it as parts unassembled



any way heres few pic of parts I've managed to acquire n small lobo frame
