I too got hold of an NOS Hammerhead few years back :wink:

And guess what? I too had the same problem as you :?

really you need a GROVE frame to put it on..

I couldnt find one..Good luck with your search.

Oh and the welds on the GROVE stuff is simply sublime and the best ive ever seen..Do you agree :?:

If I could find a grove, then that's definitely the way to go, but short of that, i was thinking of getting custom paint job done to one of my Fats to go along with this hammerhead...now, what type of pattern/paint should I go for???

Yes, the welds are amazing, though I really like the welds on one of my Fats...looks almost brazed :)

Ah man....you said it. If I could find the frame that went with this originally, I would most definitely buy a lotto ticket that very same day. That would be perfect.

I like the unusual bend in it. 'm sure it was designed to be ergonomical. Nice bar!

Hey Atom, thanks!

Yes, the bend looks organic, almost like it grew that way, and I'm sure it was made with a purpose to be ergonomic...now I just have to try it out.
