    Is this guy nuts? Everything looks clean and in good shape. There's plenty tread on the tires. IT'S GOT A MONSTER T! A steal for sure. Just send that shock to Push and swap on a lighter saddle.
    Keep the Country country.

    Yea even without taking the saddle off I can tell it weighs about 4-5 pounds.

    Thanks for the advice, I'll watch out for that.

    That's just like my old DHi....man that was a sweet bike. Until it broke at the shock mount like they all did. But I did get 4 years out of it so not too bad IMO. Great pedaling bike in the rough stuff...zero pedal feedback.

    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,

    Sounds like that frame may be a time bomb but you've got some sweet parts to hang on a replacement frame if it does break.

    For sure, but I don't know of a DH frame that gets 9" of travel in the back
    I'll probably have to buy a new rear shock when that does happen, but Vanillas are cheap.

    Nice!
    I just picked one of these up the other week for $700 and it came with a 2002 Boxxer fork, 2009 Avid Code 5 brakes, and TONS of spare parts.

    I see that you also got one of the ones that was made in the USA, good stuff!
    You'll love this bike! I know I do.
