    I'm diggin' the brake/lever combo! Just curious, how do those levers feel? I'm thinking about a set for an old hard tail of mine.

    Sweet find indeed!

    dont they look fockin hot with the black ops stem? unfortunately, all ive got so far besides some short test rides in my lbs days is a home shop and parkin lot tests as i rode around town a little shootin pics today with a 16" drill bit in 1 hand as a frame support. so far im not complainin but things can change when ya grab a handfull on the dirt. they might be set up a bit tight to be honest but theres no denyin the power of a vee has not seen anythng like this before.

    chas: hows my baby? tell her i miss her will ya?

    thanx for the nice comments guys. it never dawned on me that it would get this much attention much less everything said in the original thread. big29 was right. i figured if it didnt have 2.1's or bigger, it wouldnt get noticed on this forum.

    Lookin' good CC

    I recall Rick mentioning you were interested in this frame. He's had that stashed away for years, it's never had a part attached to it AFAIK. Sweet!

    Glad to see you sooo stoked CC!! Nice period build. I'm pretty sure "Lana" won't give an ounce in performance away to any current bike built for the same purpose. Dang, all this Stinger love is gonna make me get mine outta mothballs and take it for a rip ! BTW, I'm thinking your Profile carbon H2o cage blends nicely with the Turner logo.

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane CC. Great find! After riding my Sultan and Flux on back to back days, I remember what I like about light bikes. That thing ought to be a rocket.

    That's a pretty sweet build. Any idea where you think you're gonna take off almost 2 lbs.?
