Loving it! It has a real stateside look about it, especially with the lawill forks!

"Shore duty"... USN by any chance?

Yes I'm in the Navy, even got to visit merry old England because of it back in the early 90's.

Thanks for the compliments. :D

Picture of the other side. Put some off road tyres on her yesterday and took her for a spin down some fire roads. It was a blast! :D

Did you ever get over to the store in Haleiwa (can't remember the name), I was there in '98 and they had the most impressive collection of boutique frames and parts I've ever seen. It was a real Aladdin's cave...(or should that be garage?)

I checked it out again in '03 but sadly all the old stuff had disappeared, still a great store though.
