yes only the pull shocks were homegrowns. Still cool though and welcome on the group


I think the bassboat coloured frames were also Homegrown, bassboat blue/grey and blue/gold? Those that had a separate seatmast.

Thanks for the welcome! Hoping to pick up some good old gold from the marketplace soon.

They made the homegrown straight 6 in bass boat blue in 97 although it wasn't in the brochure. Also the 6 in bass boat red/gold in 98.
The next year they had gone to the straight 8 which was black and gold.

After that none of them were homegrowns.

The 4 bangers are bass boat blue/silver and bass boat gold/silver
I have one and love it!

I bought that one - US$600 including shipping to Singapore; pics in the next post


Great stuff!! :D
Wow, I'm jealous, that looks amazing and I'm sure it'll ride well too. You should open a build thread on it. Nice to see there's a bit of a Schwinn Lawwill following on here!

M950/952 cranksets are too dear for the nice ones or too worn if they were affordable, so I snagged a set of Raceface Turbines in pewter with an ISIS SKF bottom bracket for the equivalent of 75 GBP:

A deal like that had a snag - a damaged non-drive cup. But it'll probably be cheap to replace (I hope!).

Oh well at least its the same colour as the XTRs I had hoped to get......
