    No. The CB banners are about CB Vaughn who was a guy who held the world speed record on skis and then made ski clothing. That race was in NY State at a little
    ski area not too far from VT where we were living at the time and I had my shop. The rider is Pete who later went on to race some for Offroad bitd.

    Also i remember a nice small show, when a shop moved to another location and the guys from Dresden organized a small exhibition in the old shop.

    That's funny the logo is almost identical to the Catamounts of the mid nineties. My brother and sister both still have one. They both had them custom built around 96'.

    Hers has been many years retired and hanging in the rafters of the garage. His is still used to this day periodically. Here's a couple photos of my brothers [red bike] and a gray head badge of one I borrowed off the net. Just to give you an idea of the logo they used.

    Damn. I wish I had a picture of my brother's old Mongoose Rockadile. It was teal with every purple anodized part that Kooka, Sunringle and Raceface made.
    Then, he had an Answer Manitou fully that was covered with blue ano parts.

    My black Cannondale was mostly black with a few red ano bits.

    That reminds me of my buddies old rockadile sx, it was also teal and decked out with purple ringle. I seriously miss those days...it was the last of a great era

    FWIW I'm still mainly riding retro but as I get older and the neck and back have gotten worse I'm going to have to switch back to something with a bit more suspension and less aggressive stances. It's still hard to beat the fun you can have on an old steel hardtail with little to no suspension up front though

    Does this count? 1992 Scott Sawtooth. I picked up for $60 on the local classifieds. I put some new WTBs on it and have wider riser handlebars on order. Originally the plan was to build it to a single-speed cruiser or a drop-bar MTB, but after seeing how good of condition the components are in and how well it functions and fits me as is, I'm going to ride it as a rigid MTB for a while!

    Not a dropper, but an old USE post with a shim. Yup, it's a brazed quill stem (as is the frame), but with a 1-inch headtube, the fork got replaced with a almost period correct (1989) straight blade fork Paul happened to have laying around, it now rides as it should and ride well it does. I've toyed with making it a dirt drop, but it'd be a shame to not keep that stem. dig it

    Didn't know a conversion headset was available, what kind of cups make this possible for 1" headtubes? Have a Judy and quill setup perfect for this:thumbsup:

    My brother had the same bike. It was silver with blue decals.

    Here I am in 1994 riding Moab Slick Rock on it. I borrowed it because I didn't have a ride. Way too small of a frame for me with basket pain in the arse pedals. ;) Great bike though.
