    Unfortunately no. I sold it back in '95. I've seen it off and on being ridden on campus or parked in bike racks by the biochem building too. If I see it again I'm going to either wait for the current owner or leave a note on it saying I want to buy it back.

    Nice Yokota btw, I have some neon pink Rock Shox stickers that would look super sweet on that RS-1 leaning behind it...

    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.

    I don't post to generate business for myself or make like I'm better than sliced bread
