thought i'd share it here too for those who are not on mtbr.com and mtb-classic.de. my latest find... still needs some work but the naked frame shows it's beauty best. it's frame 33 from 1991, size 18". the paint is one of the three most complex "stock custom" paints, called Dinosaurs. the other two were California Yuppie and California Special.

got it complete with a mix of Mavic and Suntour XC Pro and a few newer parts and RS-1 painted to match.

Image

frame, fork and stem are in pretty good nick, just need to touch up some chain marks and chain suck and a few paint chips.

Image

i LOVE that wishbone/seat tube/top tube area

and the Dinos are just cute :)

Oooooh, I like that. Love the little touches like the 'pump-peg', are you going to give the dinosaurs names? :lol:

Wow they are new to me. And look fantastic, lots of custom touches...imagine trying to ride through winter muck on those.
You would never be able to get the idea of the art work on the wishbone being pummelled with crud out of your mind.
