    Super V re-duex

    So I am nearly done with my with project and will post pics soon.

    After a few bad experiences with a Pro Flex. back in 1997 I ended up purchasing a brand new 1997 SV 1000 in red and yellow. about a month later the DD60 headshock just flat locked up. It was never greased and rusted. I upgraded to a Ultra 70 and never looked back. My SV has been a super reliable bike but the drive train and brakes were getting tired so about 6 months ago I decided to purchase a new bike which I have been riding a couple times a week.

    BUT, after doing some research I found it was possible to make the Super V current and better than it ever was without major $$s. It was sad to see my old SV hanging on the ceiling so it became project time. Was also a great way to put together a spare bike and a bike that my son could start to learn MTBing on.

    The last piece is a new rear air shock with platform that will give me 4.5"s of buttery travel to go along with the newly serviced Lefty.

    Gonna be sweet.

    The Super V lives.

    I'm just in the middle of rebuilding a 2001 super V (It's costing me a fortune!)
    But what the heck I'll have something different on the trails

    I can't wait to see the build pics and details!


    I've owned a '95 Super V1000 since new and I'm thinking of making it a Lefty 69'er.
