    ....DeKerf FS COMPLETE

    Just picked this up yesterday....
    Brings me back to the days when i would stand and drool at all the blinged out Brodie and DeKerf's at my LBS....and had no chance of affording.
    Needs some paint eventually, and most likely a shock rebuild, but apparently Mr. DeKerf has a baggy of parts at his shop still.....will have to pay a visit.

    Let the games begin...

    I've sent a couple emails to them and haven't heard back.
    Maybe they're out of stuff...

    AMP has stopped supporting their bicycles+parts (brakes). Corporate decision from what I understand.

    Good job. Anything DeKerf is cool in my book.
    Zip ties? Not on my bike!

    Want:
    650B rims or wheel set. 80's vintage 32 or 36 x 135mm

    So it's a DeGoose now I suppose?

    Sorry, couldn't help myself...

    Looks great, and yes, anything DeKerf is good with me too!
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    So, it's finally finished.
    Found a painted Mag 21SL Ti with DeKerf decals on it, so she almost looks like the catalogue, minus the cantis and Ti bar/stem combo (impossible to find).
