I've seen a few old school items go for a lot less than usual during this last week on ebay...imo, it has to do with the global economic crisis. My next round of auction will all be fixed price auctions due to bidders just not being there

sweet as a nut! Colour match looks perfect. Was that an argos stock or did they match it for you?


Stock colour! The phone camera doesn't really do it justice; it is an amazing colour, true Milka 8)

Yep, been a bit of a bind getting the forks done, but they are currently at Argos [again]. Trouble is there's a two week wait..

I'm not sure if thats just the photo, or lots of camera flash, but both the blue & the green look a lot "lighter" than the original FAT colours.

Beautiful! :shock:

The '94 Shock-A-Billy is one of my all time favorite bikes. Steel meets Amp; what's not to like? :wink:

I remember MBA's rave review. They called it "a Ninja in a party dress."

More pics please.
