    Very nice.

    Still one of the best feeling and riding suspensions of all time.

    The Homegrowns were sold with blue or gold bassboat paint. I have the same gold frame as you do.

    Happen to have the bearing sizes? I would like to replace mine.

    Agreed. I'd love to see a modern 6" Lawwill trail bike for sale. With all the advancements in weight and frame tech, I think it would be a great bike.

    Baulz, I don't have the sizes, but the parts I ordered from Real World Cycling for my Banger were:

    Main pivot and chainstay main pivot: 6001 LLU MAX C3
    Pivots at the rear axle: 608 LLB MAX

    Hope that helps.

    6001 LLU MAX C3 / 608 LLB MAX sounds right-4 of each. made a huge diff./max bearings use no cages & more bearings packed w/syn. grease. ENDURO MAX BEARING SPECIFICATIONS

    FYI, I'm selling a complete Straight 6 rear end, which would give you a couple nice upgrades like the IS mount black magnesium dropouts and the longer travel Fox Vanilla shock. It would also give up a spare lower swingarm (which are known to crack from time to time).

    By the way, you can also upgrade your fork's seals to Enduro seals and ditch the boots.
