Heres my two rockies:
1997 soul I bought new. I raced it cross country until losing my sponsorship and drifting away from the sport. Later It survived as a commuter by Vancouver somehow without getting stolen. It picked up a wierd mix of parts along the way. I use it for cruising and to haul my kids around. My wife also likes riding it.
I found this 95 fusion recently for 20$. I threw on the seat and stem. Not sure what to do with it yet, but it deserves a makeover.
