I'll be the first to say has that got an engine ?, someone will also say do you know your engine has fallen off :lol:

Look's great mate, just right with the orange detailing, doesnt need any spangly gold anywhere at all :)

I'd kill myself on that thing for sure :lol:

Oh, it has'nt escaped the spangly gold then :lol: , still looks cool 8)

I'd get on it and ride it ok, with some step ladders and a pair of platform boots :lol:

You are right about tall bikes though, put the old San Andreas frame together with 7" travel front and rear, would have been a handfull on the trail for sure, should have got shorter forks and shock for it but sold the bugger :cry:
