Nice bike dude but i thought the '98 was black originally? Cant beat a bit of Leftfield either :wink:


May have been I bought her in 1998 as a 1999 bike :? I'll dig out my receipt.

Here is how she looked pre Argos...

Correct, that's the '99 decals.

That's the same owner's manual that came with my 97 Kilauea. Unfortunately my former wife threw it away. From memory some sections of it are a bit tedious, but some of the technical stuff about the frame specs etc is well worthy of scanning for the Retrobike Archive IMHO.

Went out for a very wet & sandy ride yesterday - sand is not good when you get it in your shorts :( :oops: :oops:

Here is a single pic of the Caldera - after this was taken it was just too muddy wet and sandy to bother with pics! :roll:

Only thing changed over spec on page one is a wider bar.

eNJOY :D
