!998 Sunn Vertik II - XT/XTR, Pace RC36's - some dodgy bits inc grip/bar ends necessary due to age of rider :wink:

Lurvelly springy steel frame, very rare bike due to the up and down nature of the manufacturer

Can't believe this is the only photo I hev been able to find!

fair point - they did make some nice bikes back then - the Exact was with the Colombus frame wasn't it? You still got the obsys forks?

Don't worry, he claims he doesn't like Konas either.

So that puts Sunn in good company.
