Cool paint job and that's a great little shop (Blue Lug) .... aww, I miss Japan.
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.
More,more I crave more anybody want to contribute some vintage neon:thumbsup:

Sweet bikes MB......
You are going to have to find a tall girlfriend..
I'm digging the neoin bikes. brings back memories.
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.

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
I can't remember what year, but this is the bike I got after I traded in my Neon Green splatter
Diamondback, yeah I went purple, and mullet. Thinking "89".
Are you that wrestler from the 80's, Big McLargeHuge?
I am only 5'8" and back then weighed 175. The hair made me look bigger. :D
Kinda miss the old Topanga:cryin:
