    I dig this thread. I too am old school. I just picked up an 04 or 05 santa cruz bullit frame. Thing is thrashed but there isn't any structural damage so I'm gonna give it a fresh paint job. The problem is I have to get the rear triangle separated from the rest of the frame to do a good job but I'm not quite sure how. I pulled the bolt out as shown in the picture but I'm not exactly sure how it is all held together and how to get it separated safely. Anybody know how?

    looks like you need to press the center thread pin out

    Yeah I tried tapping it out but it didn't seem to wanna move so I didn't push it cuz I didn't wanna screw it up. It's the only frame I got :-)

    Soak it with penetrating oil overnite and press it out. I'm pretty sure all you need is a socket the same size or if you are going to replace the pin just get a long bolt and pound it out. You may get away doing it that way without damaging the pin threads.

    Ah tyin to sell me your shock huh? It came with a 5th element on it so I'm gonna see how that performs. If it sucks, I will probably turn to a fox coil-spring. Good looks.

    no. loosen the bolt on the side of the bearing. in your photo if is on the right side. If you don't loosen that it will stay clamped to bearing. these are known as "pinch bolts"

    Your method worked good man. Thanks. It's tough when somethin is in so tight ya feel like if gonna break it but the penatrating oil loosened her up nicely.

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?).
    Had i seen this when you posted it I would have been all over it lol
