If anyone has a photo of this bike at the Ringle both please post it.

I will take better larger photos soon.

I shall refrain from licking the screen!!! I have a feeling Elite will be interested in these pictures too.

Surprised there's no Mojo hangers although have a strong feeling these came later on.

I could not find documentation that the Mojo’s were availed in 1993. The bike came with Green Mojo’s, which did not look correct so I swapped them for the Avids.

Anyone wanna trade green mojos for silver or black?

WOW friggin WOW :shock: , that's stunning 8)

May be a dumb thought but if the bike was built as a Ringle showcase why did'nt they use a more stand out colour for the components like blue, purple or red ?

That's not to say the Pewter is'nt awesome.

The 1992/3 Ringle catalog calls it special edition pewter. Maybe it is special?
