Sweet. I'm stoked to have gotten my hands on one so I've been digging out old reviews and the like.

Fedex just made it here with the frame about 10 minutes ago. I've been in touch with Spectrum Powder Works and intend to send the frame and a set of Judy lowers to them this week for matching powder coat and graphics.

I'm stoked! :twisted:

Dude, it's a Mantis - I've got to go GREEN! :twisted: Was thinking a flat Kawasaki green, but I'm now considering a candy-apple coat.

What do you guys think?

Also, the frame I picked up is a '95. Does anyone have any literature/reviews on the '95 Profloater?
