Finally got everything I needed in the post today, to finish these both off, completely.

Now built and ready to roll @ Thetford this weekend... 8) 8)

Both ride/sit/handle/feel totally different, it's so weird. I know one has sus and the other is full rigid, but they're both so wildly different it's confusing... :oops: :? :lol:


Anyway, hope you like:

Cheers Luke,

The black one is just mint (testament to the powdercoat job, from the last owner) and they're both 91's.

The black one also weighs an absolute ton compared to the Orange one.

Note the differing stem angles, for 2 x completely different rides... :wink:

Looking good pal! I've always though that these look awesome. The Aggros look great on the black one too.

Did you do anything with the rather sorry looking one I sold you?

cheers fella,

The one I got from you is in for some special treatment very soon... :wink: need to run it down the powder coaters this week, for a diffenet hue..

And then there's the ano 3dv frame'd one, that I just don't know what to do with, in terms of a tasteful build..

like you mention, allot to do with the stem i guess, judging by how much seat post you have out

I would try the one stem on both bikes to get a better comparison
