it would be cooler if i could get the proper black on yellow decals instead of the m3 ones it has on! from what i have found out the swinging arm is 2001 but i'm not %100. i will have to look if the mech hanger is replaceable. i have had this bike for about 3 years and its had hardly any use as i haven't got round to springing it for all of the 14 stone yorkshire man that pilots it!!! loving the decepticon decal on the orange frame by the way. nice bikes!

I'm going to check the frame number. it has the same rear end but it has a plate under the head tube but that could be a repair. but this is giving me ideas! 8)

Yup, 98 frame with later decals and longer travel plates. Is the link a one-piece or two plates?
