    Dump, Dump, Goose!

    Check out this frankenbike production. Got the frame from the town dump and decided to see if I could build it up into the first ever Mongoose69er. It's SS with center squish. Rides nicely on driveway but need to take it out on some trails.

    Some things are just better left alone.

    Nice Paint and URT, nice, been good to SS though if you really have to, work like a HT.

    Well, it is hunting season right now so that is definitely a plus and I forgot to mention the URT aspect, which was one of the main reasons why I did this. Always wanted to try a URT and what better way than on a freebie.

    My GT I-drive is 1/2 URT rides great no bob at all, but the URT bike a mate bought for 120 and never used cause it was 45lbs just bobbed like hell on earth, I put it down to cheap shock though.

    Enjoy

    There isn't much bob with the shock, in fact it really feels more like a shock post.
