Hi Sandro,

Yes, I do still work with Mike Sander!

I did my SAAB, Yo and yo-eddy's Yo with stuff and it worked out really well. Pretty sure there won't be a rust issue for the Yo's for at least the upcoming centuries 8)

The point is the tiny holes in the rear of the Panasonic didn't allow the nozzle of my spraygun.

very nice Melvin .

i have received the Haro and the seller made a mistake , it is not used but brand new .
It came with an original stem , handlebar and seatpost , all from haro .
there are a few marks as the bike was built at some point .

Thnx! Still in progress. For the rear there will be fatter rubber and the blue Gorilla's are to be replaced by silver polished AC's - I hope.

Of course more decent and more detailed pics when done.
