Last night I'd had a bad day and thought I'd put some of my old DH stuff on the Sunn to get it built up and out of the way and to see if having it built would make it easier to see what I have and what I need to work on.
I know the bike looks silly with the jacked up forks but I'll be reducing travel to suit the frame soon, I just wanted to show off some of the kit we rode DH in the 90's. Coming soon, old helmet, Dainese and race shirt pics.
