    Some of the bikes doesn't look really old and are still driven in the bike parks.

    But others are so unique! Hope there will by allways someone who conserves these old racing machines. The kids of today just know YT and a few big brands like specialized.

    My old customized Haro MX3 with Stratos Helix Pro shock and RST MOZO XXL fork.



    This is the one that came before the Haro... a customized Cannondale Super-V DH 4000

    Loving the old school big fat saddles. I guess after a while people figured out that they weren't sitting while cornering when it was rough so a normal saddle was fine. If you were sitting and could scoot up to get more weight on the front wheel a long saddle would be a pretty good idea.
    No it never stops hurting, but if you keep at it you can go faster.

    Ha I have a love seat on mine, honestly it suks to sit on but works fine on the DH bike and offers a big spot to land on a missed jump or whatever

    I took my '99 bb7 out for a serious flogging today, love that thing and she keeps on ticking even off some big drops! Old school doesn't mean crappy....although if i had the $$$ I'd love a new v10!

    HI, I'm new here but I do have what might be considered to be an "old School" DH/FR bike, it's an 04 Rotec FR8. I haven't ridden it very much at all in the last few years since my son isn't quite ready for anything "serious" in the way of trails so we've been concentrating on the local cross country trails.

    My new project been after one since they come out all those years and finally got one frame has a few chips on it but thats it, the guy i bought it off had it sat in his shed since 2002 and never got around to building it.

    Old School DH bikes-img_5532.jpg
    My other ride a haro dhr stripped and ready for the soda blaster the build i have for this should be special, as you can see from the pic i have got rid of the fox rc and am going to be using the rockshox blackbox rear shock i bought many moons ago from an ex global racing team riders 222/223

    Evolution of a brand.


    Last week I was in the Alps and met a guy with a carbon V10, so had to get a photo of the too together. Hopefully in 13 years time I'll have a carbon V10

    very cool...I remember the old super 8 and how they kept front triangle but changed the rear for the first generation V-10

    I have often thought about going the old school route and restoring older DH bikes with new components instead of buying a new rig. I know its not practical, but the cool factor (for me) is off the charts. Plus, that is the era I grew up in and nothing gets me going like an old Lobo DH or Lawwill Straight 8.

    My outdated rig still rockin


    Nice shots! Oh, by the way, nice bike.

This is the pimpin-est of all Super 8s as I had a custom shock shuttle made to accommodate a longer stroke Romic shock and Ti spring (800lb I think) achieving 9" of travel. The frame is perfect and the shock only had 1 season of use. Free to the first person who can pick it up or pay the shipping (approx $60?).
    That frame looks amazing. Almost like indestructible looking.

    What fork did you use for the Blue one? Awesome ride.

    with AMP Research Mac-Strut rear suspension giving 3.5" and Rockshox Judy DH fork

    fork was custom fitted with Sachs hydraulic disc brake (before the Judy actually had disc mounts)



    our team bikes ran Kore and Azonic finishing kit, TWP fork brake and TWP AMP brace, Bullet Bros chain tensioner, SACHS New Success transmission, Wellgo platform pedals, Selle San Marco saddle with carbon fibre rails and FIR / Sachs wheelset with prototype IRC tires
    This is so sick!!! One of my fave posts!

    The Mongoose I am talking about was before that. I believe it was based on the Mongoose VRS. It was similar to this but a little beefier. It may have actually been a VRS. I just remember looking at it and riding it and it was nothing like I had ever seen or felt before!



    A couple others I came across

    Specialized FSR Team DH


    Norco VPS


    Diamondback XTS Moto


    Rotec


    BMW (not the car)


    Risse Racing's bolt together DH bike
    I canít help but stare at that BMW bike. Am I the only one seeing that chain wheel?

    It sees frequent use, and I think I'll try to keep it alive as long as possible.

    For AM/light DH use, it's a nice ride.

    Thanks man..... I'll post some more pictures tomorrow, I'm not sure how many inches it has but I'm guessing 7" at most. Maybe some kind of factory headshok Moto. Also, when I pull up on the boot cover of the forks legs, it "appears" to have the same type of Lefty design. Four square edges sliding into the tube. You'll see what I mean when I post the pics later on!

    A rig I haven't seen posted yet.

    Dirt Works Pirahna




    Don't know if it was ever used as a DH bike, but played a significant roll in the development of FS bikes none the less.


    Diamondback X10


    Some pictures of a few legends from our sport.

    Here is a photo I found of Greg Herbold (HB) from 1990 in his UCI Downhill Champion attire.

    Lookin at a 2002 Super 8 on craigslist, pretty vague on the setup.....what i could gather from the pictures was mavic rims and hubs, fox rear shock, race face cranks, mighta been marzocchi shocks. Anybody have even a shot in the dark value for this? Never looked at santa cruz too much, but this bike just looks fun!

    I am still riding my 204 Magnum, heavy, but works well due to the low shock position and bombproof design.
