Hey folks,

I thought I would post a picture of my 1993 Rock Lobster, which means quite a lot to me sentimentally. I have owned the frame from new, originally I bought it with an impact headset and 1" rigid Orange P7 forks.

It has been through many different guises, and this is how it is currently, but is always work in progress. I was going to get it repainted in the original blue colour it sports at present, but that would mean covering over some original mid nineties mint sauce stickers and some poigniant scars it has picked up along the way, so I decided against it.

Here it is anyway! It does require a few more bits and pieces doing (rear brake plumbing in) tweaks here and there. It not a contender for any awards, she's just here because she feels like family!

Enjoy!

One style tip for the Toplines: Lose the red inner chainring bolts
