Lawwil Leader, super cool but reasonably rare. There are a few on the site. I'd love one myself but never been in the right plac eat the right time.


Linkage wise I think the Leader is going to look the best - if you can find one at the right price...

That is going to be one stunning bike! I like it a lot... Even so much that I want one myself!

Not only to freak others out but like you said but if you own a Coyote you can proudly sing 'Can't Fight the Moonlight' from LeAnn Rimes which is the themesong from Coyote Ugly.

Made a few enquiries about this one myself when it was For Sale, but alas too small.

Build looks promising, fingers crossed you score some forks soon :wink:

Both sets of AC cranks are snagged up at customs and one set of Leaders was sold ages ago :evil:

Think I've bagged the second set though :D

This week I have mostly been swapping handlebars. (On this and the FSR in the background)


Spotted some tasty wheels on ebay that I'm willing to go stupid high just to get.
Anybody got any gear shifter ideas? Was it thumbshifters only back then?
:?

good work on the forks.

as for shifters you could use thumbies, grip shifts or shimano pods
