Got this rather nice large frame off of velo and intend to just fling it together in a SS kind of styleeeee. It is pretty battered but has a certain vagabond charm none the less.

If I like the ride then it will get some love over the winter- kind of thinking black powdercoat with all of the unnecessary bits of metal taken off and some good brakes (v's prob :oops: ).

The ride of a Stumpjumper is 100% perfect, you will not be disappointed.

I'd tidy it up, but not too much. Mine has a used but not abused look that I like.

thanks for the correct year lads 8) changed the thread and am really looking forward to getting this on the road to get my stumpie cherry popped :twisted:

I could have it ready for sunday Kaiser but for drum I am def. looking for some front bounce, to many roots and the back is still kind of sore from last weekends abuse.
