originally it had Rock Shox Indy S forks - someone might be able to date it from them!

It's recently its had a overhaul. new everything besides bars, stem an forks

cheers guys!

i get sentimental an don't really throwing old bikes away, especially ones where you have memories of.

My Scott has been all around the country with me on family holidays an things so there is no way i could get rid of it...

is it common to name your bikes too? My Scott is called "Lynyrd"

yep, sad i know but i remember watching the "Mudcows" videos back in the 90's and being amazed so have used the "Mudcows" name ever since

i think the "cow" videos were what really got me into single track an free ride and to be honest just messing about on bikes...so if you still see the boys tell them thanks off me!

thats cool that they influenced you that way, it was certainly one of their main objectives of making the films. lots of mucking around in cairns...lots of silly stuff :lol:

i really like this sequence, set to an aussie death metal band track no less. john dalozzo in the purple helmet, rodney in the ute talking about his fictional farm with glenn jacobs..and michael ronning, just as he was making his foray into the norba and world cup dh scene...

I'm preety sure it's model from 1998 :)
Painting scheme, frame material (it's looking like an aluminium, 1996 and 1997 Tampicos were cro-moly) shows it have to be 1998 ;)

BTW - is it a Z3 light at the front?
