I really like DBR. Just really like the look of them. When I saw this 20 inch frame for sale on ebay, I had to try to get it.... And guess what.... I just bought it!

I will try to get it to The Netherlands, but with some help from members, I think it will get here..... some day!

Anyway, will try to find some parts for it. Nice project for 2011!

So, this is it: a 1995 DBR WCF Vertex!

those are cool just horribly flexy.

Do you have a build plan?

Some more pics after some work on it.....

Got a Marzochi Bomber Z2 on it now, but will change it for a Manitou Comp that is on the way! The Kooka headset is very nice with it and I love the WTB tires.
Will do some work on the chips on the frame. Not major though: it's gonne be a rider!
