The odds had to be astronomical that you'd ever see it again. I do wish they'd taken my offer instead. ;)

BTW, I owe you a call. We have a bike to build.

Ace story, ace looking frame, ace paint. Doesn't get any better than this :D

Although...is it just me or are those bars bent? Maybe meant to be like that?

Hello Rody, yep i think we all did the same thing at some point. sold our all time favorite mtb. You are bloody lucky! i sold a 91 YETI FRO when i needed the money. And the son of abitch who bought it still teases the hell out of me with it on the rare occasion our paths cross. I have a brand new GROVE hammerhead bar/stem combo in tripple neon fade. Been saving it for the right bike. The right bike never came so im going to sell it! Any takers i can e-mail pictures. 8)

Steve,

Yes, the Hammerhead and Hothead bars are bent on purpose. There are actually 3 bends that are p[laced under the hands to reduce wrist strain and improve ergonomics.

Melvin,

Those triple neon fade have to be close to the bars you lost out on...being a "son of a bitch" would be well worth it :lol:



Worked on putting the bike together last night...got it to a rolling chasis, hoping to ride it by the weekend.

This makes me think slimjoe could be the one that outbid me in the very last seconds on the item destinied to be mine. Remember the guy outbidding me was called 'yetisherpa' or something. You're yetisherpa slimjoe?

:D Howdy, yep my e-bay name is yetisherpa. Sucks dont it? I never look whos bidding on e-bay in fact i hardly use it anymore. However it might be a good time to reap the benefits of some kit ive hauled in in the past. Im selling all of stuff im not presently using, you could call it recycling. Please look out for a bunch of COOK BROS. stuff, GROVE HAMMERHEAD etc. I will be sticking it on E-bay i dont like it much but it does give everyone a fair chance. :lol: I aplogise if i outbid anyone out there but hey its been done to me loads of times!!!
