Now I have fully realised I have too many projects on the go, the Proflex sketch up (TM - Mr Kawasaki
) session seems a little futile.... What with an RTS and Mag 20s on the way, it will surely slip to the back of the FS queue, as I have no great sentimentality with Proflex - always thought it was a bit of an old man's bike, BITD!
Although it was cheap (apart from shipping from the US), it is very sound. Deffo needs a respray as the candy flecked paint has been chipped to buggery, so that means it will sit on the backburner for some time. It appears, at least, to have never seen muddy conditions as the rear suspension washers are minty. No amount of research has uncovered the standard front end for this model yet, although I believe it was a pair of rigid forks with a flexstem. If this frame ever gets built, it will have Manitou 1s.
BTW I love the Offroad branding more than the Proflex - anyone know the history of Offroad as a business?
PS. Maybe someone ought to express an interest in the usual way (cash offer
) to relieve the pressure...!
