Ok I know this doesn't float everyone boat, but this was my dream bike in 1994. My high school sketchbook has a full page drawing of it!...

It is missing the seatpost to saddle clamps but I already have a quote to machine them.. I will build it with a full 737 deore XT groupo..ritchey rims and 2.3 tires..ill keep it clean...

yes I am going to deviate from my 15 year old build direction!..

more to come!

the one on the frame is a crosstrac fork.. pretty advanced for 94.. the one on my high school sketch looks like a judy sl with a huge long travel kit..would be a noodle!

I'll stick with the crosstrac fork!

That's a beauty. Crazy to think it's over 20 years old, to me it still looks pretty "far out" design wise, even by modern standards.
