I love it :D but then i do ride Proflex's and Orange X1's (Not everyones choice in retro Full Sussers I know)

If it was mine i would dress it up in shiny STX-RC and enjoy it :D

The rear shock looks like the same set-up as Proflex, which may cause you some issues if it is shot and needs replacing, however there are plenty of options out there so dont rule anything out.

STX-RC Groupset is easily obtainable for little cash and can be polished to look bling and inject life into any bike it graces, its also pretty good at doing its job and having run both STX-RC on my Proflex and Orange can vouch for that.

But dont rule anything out thats fitted to the bike, some elbow grease and some lube will bring parts up a treat :D
