Similar story for me.
Discovered this site back around '08, after I decided to rebuild my '94 Lava Dome.
It'd snapped on the driveside dropout in around '98. I've a feeling that this below photo might've been taken the day it broke.
Then, it lay dormant for many years. Decades passed, the world forgot about the Lava Dome. But then, a creature came across his old frame.... Whoa, I've gone all middle earth here.
Anyway, here's my precious now.
