These were the frames that Greg "Willie" Williams and Sky at Coyote Adventures used to ride in Downieville in about 1997.
I think Willie is still involved with this crowd... he is one of the nicest guys I've ever ridden with.
To me these bikes were pivotal in that they were some of the first suspension bikes that actually worked well enough to use.
Nice build. I've got a soft spot for Leaders... a good friend ran them. Those spinnergy's are good for the lighty rider - watch out for the freehub body, and wear on the rims will eventually kill them.
He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy.
