    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    1989 when I bought it used from a local bike shop. They did custom frames and paint, they had a knack for taking old bikes and doing this to them..

    Check out Grove Innovations, alot of loud paint jobs.

    http://www.purplelizard.com/GIintro.htm

    Was mostly an xt gruppo, but the rear der ripped off several years ago, so I filed off the tab and converted it to a grocery store bike. A 24" rear wheel does not make for a good single speed mtb, nor does the 42x18 gear (only one I could find that worked without going to an ENO hub, didn't want to put that much into it...)

    Lastly, it did have a matching fork, but they kept breaking, they got tired of matching the paint and gave me a plan black one.

    GF's bike -- accidental retro neon!

    Actually, the frame is only a few years old. Found the perfect sized frame for her, but alas, it was hideous originally (K2 Razorback HT frame in a red, white & blue). Having only a few minutes before catching a flight, I looked at the paint shop's computer screen and said "Hell, let's just go with that." 'That' was Ford Blue, and after several years in the auto industry, I should have remembered what Ford Blue meant. On this frame, it's much brighter than it was under the hood of an old mustang. I left them with the riser bars, cranks and frame.

    She's one for subtle things, but she's admittedly getting used to her new day-glo blue rig.

    It does need some decorating for sure, but I don't know if she'd go for the Shelby labels. Thinking a custom head badge would be nice.

    Ahh, the gear head days: With so many fords and chevys around back then, I grew fond of and tinkered with Mopar. Not quite as oddball as the old AMC, but not as common as the 350s & 302s. Anyway, these days I opt for tinkerin' on things that I can still afford... and things that will fit in my living room. Burning rubber felt good, but these days I'd rather burn calories.

    I hear you, I had a 69' GTO and later on had a 71' CUDA' unfortunately they are long gone. These days only the well to do can afford the old metal. My goat was one of the rarest GTO's ever produced and I recently saw one go for $300K.

    Did a race waaaay back in Rhode Island, we were asked to wear Blaze orange, and were issued orange helmet covers, HUNTING SEASON in the state park!

    Thought the orange looked "good" next to my Neon green accents on my Monster FAT!!!!

    My Rascal

    My Klein Rascal from 1993. I loved the colors of this bike as well as the way it rode. It handled Moab - Porcupine Rim / Poison Spider / Amasa Back without complaint. I find it funny that I now consider a 6" bike the minimum for Porcupine - how times have changed. I sold the Rascal a few years back, but here are some pics.

    Yangpei,

    That brings back some memories. I rode my '90 klein on all those trails as well. 6" for me now as well.
