Edit -- Added photos showing new bars and strange but comfortable cockpit.

I'm waiting for a new stem that will add a bit of height and a front rack. It's turning into a po' boy's porteur.

Originally bought it in the spring of 2001 for 175 new. It suffered the weather on the east coast and here in SoCal.

It took 2 months of free time (not consecutive hours) to rid the metal of as much rust and oxidation as possible, replace cables, retouch paint chips, and replace various bits here and there. A labor of love.

Not the worlds lightest bike. But certainly not as heavy as the Eletrical Banana UAV (Urban Assault Vehicle) in it's current state.

Its a fun project bike. I've learned a lot. Like don't leave it in the rain and sun.

Upright bars rock!

Plus you can get down on the center of them for high speed (similar to drops on a road bike). The position is then standard low mtb.

don't take her to tsali.

man i used to go to tsali and there was a camp that would bring their kids to ride. they used those hard rocks or the model right up from it to ride the trail. i was scared for those kids life. great project bike but not a xc bike.

Yeah, I hear you. It's ok for street and light trails. Same as my old bones.
