Nice to see this bike in here - deserves it. But I think more period correct built would be with Mr.T's instead of Monster, but hey its not my bike :wink: Love to see better photos.

I had six of these as I raced world cup for the 98 season. I had all fork combos bomber, Mr T (snapped 4 sets) and last of all Super T's. From memory I destroyed at least six swingarms. Brakes were formula with numerous modifications. Also Xt cranks sprockets etc, Tioga sticky rubber tires. It was a great bike of the era and excellent at super high speeds.

I always liked the look of those frames I've never ridden one though. This frame with Bomber Z1's and Formula brakes would be sick.

P.S. Isn't 1998 after 1997? :lol:

That was my plan ... Had the frame, had the formula set-up but never got the forks .... Then thought when the hell would I ride it :lol:

Still got the brakes/discs but flogged the frame for £50 :?

I would've paid more for it :wink:

There's MrT's (6 pairs) going for sale on US e-bay for £100, NOS. P&P is only £20 to UK, I think.
