Hey guys, just picked this up for a hell of a steal, $35! Couldn't pass it up. It's my first full suspension bike and first project bike.
Here's what it looked like when I picked it up:
Stripped it down to the frame and cleaned everything except the joint bearings and rear shock. Repacked the head bearings and swapped over some parts from my hardtail. Here's how it sits as of last night:
Just ordered an a2z disc adapter and it should be in this week. Planning on painting it over the winter and adding some time appropriate decals.
The rear shock does seem a little stiff. This being my first full suspension I'm not sure if that's how coils are or if it needs cleaning or what. Any suggestions? Also, do you guys happen to know the size specs for the rear shock? If I keep it long enough I was thinking of finding something like a fox float.
Here's the bike I swapped the parts from, not much but it was my first bike:
