I imported this frame from California several years ago. Apart from a little paint fade from the Californian sun it's in very good condition.
Finally got round to building her and ready for Mountain Mayhem 2019
(yes I know the seat bolt is wrong...)

Looks fantastic, love it :)

Does it take a special type of seat bolt or would a nutted one work? I have one with black ends you could have for postage if it’s long enough and suits.

I like it, sweet like watermelon flavored bubble gum.

ParkPre made some good bikes back then, priced well also.

Don’t see many in the States, let alone in the UK.

Love the cables and grips. And the toe straps too! Holy colour coordination Batman!

Love it! Makes mine look very dull. They do ride surprisingly well despite being the cheapest frame Parkpre did at the time. Must be good as it made me login and post a comment. Hopefully see you at Mayhem!
