I dig it. White bikes always strike me as very classy, and of course, I've got a thing for Beasts too. Good stuff!8)


Who did your decals?

decals are by Gil as usual. i think the manitous are going in favour of the pepperoni once it arrives :wink: out for its first wee run today and its a nice machine. some better outside pics and of course fully built. not sure if the xyzs are staying. they're good though with cracking positions but damn they're ugly!

The xyz's are not the nicest looking things your right, I ran them BITD for a period on the orig. clockwork (thought I looked sooooo cool) when I was doing a lot of road riding and the various positions came in very handy- snagged my fair share of trees when I ventured offroad :roll:
