yeah it was one of the 1st american taj's, in chrome with peregrine superpro wheels.

it was a great bike, i kept bending the forks though!

my sir name is lee, so i had to have a general when they came out!!
i saw them first in bmx plus magazine, and ordered one straight away!

even now alot of my riding buddies still call me 'the general'

Here's my new trail ride for 2013. Mutiny Robbo X Sekt in 21 inch TT and lovely slack 74 head angle. Yet to ride it at the trails but feels good in the park. Been building trails all winter so can't wait to hit them up when it eventually dries out (which is will)!
