    1991 Alpinestars Al-Mega DX
    Nearly complete, paint is great, and obtained for next to nothing. Its a bit large for me, but I'm going to get it running and figure it out from there......

    Nice rides guys, I remember that Alpinestar from back in the day. You cant mistake that frame design with way the rear triangle is shaped. That design makes sense for better ground clearance. Cool bike and nice job with the resto.

    Just picked this one up locally, from Scott Slawta who did all the painting for Land Shark in the early years.

    Yeah, the captain position is a little big for me but workable. Good thing my boys are all on the large side. Plus, I also have a GT tandem that fits perfectly and I don't need ro think twice about damaging the paint.

    Muddybuddy,
    Those sure are some wild custom homegrown paint jobs you got going there. I like it! :thumbsup:

    Wow after a several year seperation from mountainbiking I didn't realize how much I missed it. I love this forum the most out of all and this thread certainly brings back memories for sure. Nice rides guys! I can't wait to check out the rest of the bikes on here. Looks like I have some catching up to do. BTW what year is the red Klein? If my memory serves me right I would say a 1996, am I correct?

    Awesome thread! Brings back memories of my old, neon yellow and silver Raleigh Elkhorn! Maybe I should dust it off and re-learn why Shimano stopped making Bio-Pace chainrings. :p

    That's no big deal it's just a little surface rust that's all. Nothing that a little old fashioned elbow grease and some steelwool won't fix.;)
