Nice 8) , still regret selling my San-An, never got past the rolling frame stage :cry: , it was the long travel one (2001 i think), put Monster T's on the front, it ended up too tall for my short ar*e and just felt like a handfull.

Sould have got a shorter rear shock and forks for it instead of selling it :roll:

This the one on e-bay :?: It's definitely a looker.

As mentioned above, I too liked Smiffs San-an in MBUK. It was totally different from anything I'd ever seen at the time. His had a sliding shock mount iirc.
