HI GUYS
i dont really visit this side of the forum pages, but today i was presented with the frame and forks of a 2014 honky tonk, in green. It came for free because the seat post is stuck :facepalm: not everything is missing, it still has the brake callipers and headset bearings and bar stem and dont forget the seat post.

i have everything to build it with the parts bin except the bb (al any chance of that un90 back) :lol:
its going down the flat bar conversion road,so will be fitting a triple crank and a good deal of the old xt kit....be interesting to see how it rides after :xmas-wink: :xmas-wink:

Honky tonk was a grèat bike. My bro had the brown one. Heavy but compliant. Great karma.

Get the plus gas on the go

This one is green with a goldish tint mixed with it. The paint is original with most of the light rust under the rear stays leading to the bb. I've not failed yet to remove a stuck post :xmas-wink:

Still undefeated, that seat post didn't stand a chance!!
A bit of gt85 every day running down it got it unseated (slight pun)!
And there was 175mm of it stuck in :D
