Greetings all. This is Dagger Easton elite hardtail rebuild that I am currently restoring.
I came to this site when I was doing a search for Dagger decals when I stumbled across beep beeps gorgeous Dagger FS project.

I built this bike up in 97 as a state of the art NORBA CC racer. She comes in at just under 20 lbs and is a kick in the arse to throw around.

In 97-98 I emigrated to Australia and she developed a lil corrosion problem. After 2003 she was put into storage and not ridden at all. Since then I have returned to the states and decided to restore her. special thanks to Beep Beep and Gil M for they're help with this project. as I am stoked to get her back on the dirt.

The rebuild will consist of all the orignal build parts which are a mix of Japanese, French, German, Canadien and American parts including a White bros SC-90 mm travel fork ( it was considered for downhill at the time) LOL

The frame is currently being powderoated Alien metallic silver and I should have her ready to go by the end of march. I will be sure to post the finished rebuild :D :D

Oh and beep beep that UCK YOU ALL is for you....just joshing mate ! Just a side note; The dagger boys were handing out these F%%% you all stickers at Interbike when it used to be held in Anaheim at the staples center.... It gives you an idea of Daggers cheeky attitude, They were a fun bunch of blokes.

Jah mon. Dagger Dan Glimm really knew how to weld em, as he came from the pharmacuetical fabrication industry. You have quite an impressive collection.... I used to have a Yokota back in the day, but don't remember the model.. dagger lives ! 8) :lol:

Welcome onboard Dave! Nice to have another Dagger brother in the house! :P

She's looking sweet but I see you've got almost exactly the same issues with corrosion as I had on my '98. Bit of wet and dry'll sort that out!
Looking forward to seeing it after the powdercoat - I'll have to draw up some "uck You ALL" decals for us both!! :lol:

Catch ya later Soren de Keister! :wink: :lol:
