Check this out. I found this guy at the local shop near me and the just gave it to me. They gave it to me for free because they don't warranty the suspension and muti-material frames. So we'll see what happens to this guy.

Got some new photos of the fork cleaned a little. I am going to get new boots for it later. But have fun. I will do some thing to the frame later. I is still far from the best but it looks A HELL of a lot better that before.

You guys have any Ideas on what I should do with the frame? What color I should repaint? I would like to keep the rear chrome though. But some Ideas are better than jumping the gun.
