OH my ! :shock: 8)

Jealous!


Yes i have a kmc x9sl on my patriot. Seems ok, not put milage on it yet but ist nothing out of the ordinary compared to normal - that is, its a chain so it doesnt have any thing special about it that is going to cause it to break or whatever.
Love the gold coating on it, got mine for £26 posted 8) Let me know if you need a link.

sweet patriot! that is very nice - u can have 1st dibs on the gold cage when i get round to ordering the carbon one!

cheers for the positive comments, i'll get a gold ti chain when i have sold a few more bits on fleabay and earned some more paypal funds!

if i can find a pair of green wildgrippers for my 97 avalanche i have also got, might stick the almost NOS irc mythos skinwalls currently on that on the scale to give it this type of look...

not bad eh, if u squint at mine it'll look just like it :lol:
