Flat tracker inspired custom

Postby hewey » Fri Dec 31, 2010 5:50 pm

Well after raiding my original board tracker pushie for parts for my orange bike, I was left with almost a bare frame again :roll: A couple of days ago I was in a bike shop in Wagga and found some downhill forks in their bargain bin - basically these puppies are brand new, they've sat on the shelf for 10+ years and just never sold and are outdated - perfect for what I want :twisted: The plan is a clean and simple look with a dash of flat tracker/dirt tracker thrown in.

The new forks
Mocked up with the frame and some red brick tyres I got off ebay

And some visual inspiration

I won a state title and a round of the Nationals DH in hardtail class with a set of those forks in 99.

How could you go wrong!
