    Mountain Goat Route 29 full suspension (new)

    Finally got the Mountain Goat full suspension bike painted and put back together. 29" wheels with a 4" Ventana rear. Parts are not finalized but made it rideable. "Goatful Dead" paint is by a local motorcycle guy.

    Once I finalize the parts, I'll clean it up and take some good pics.

    Is the 2nd picture down supposed to look like wES?
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    It is typically at the shop along with 6 or 8 other current Goats. We just got the latest one in today with a full bamboo paint on the frame, rigid fork, suspension fork and stem. Pictures soon. There is also one more at the powder coating place getting a candy red over silver base powder coat. Should be really nice looking.

    That's good to hear since that is our goal. Current technology with a vintage feel.

    No offense, but as a bona fide Deadhead, goats were never part of, nor have any relation to, the Dead to my knowledge. Steal your face lightning bolts, dancing bears, tie-dye, roses, shakedown street zoot guys, wheels (see custom head badge in my avatar photo), skeletons, etc.... yes, but no demonic goats.

    Nice bike and paint job nonetheless.

    But then the awesome "goatful dead" pun would go to waste

    Agreed, but it is still an inappropriate misnomer dreamed up by someone who apparently hasn't been to a Dead show and/or knows the fine points of the culture (can you say blasphemous?)

    Looks like a tribute to me. That's supposed to be a good thing. If everyone followed exact cultural rules like that you would have never even had the Grateful Dead in the first place

    How is naming a paint job based on icons that are NOT part of the Dead culture a tribute? Sh*t... I wish I had some of whatever you are smoking to make that stretch ! You had it right the first time - it is a nice pun and nothing more.

    Anyway, my apologies to the OP for starting this off-topic BS - I was simply trying to point out that demonic goats have nothing to do with the Dead and will cease posting to this thread to hopefully keep it on-topic.

    Peace and out!

    ...so you're saying "skin the goat" from "US blues" doesn't qualify?

    Yeah, the Goatful Dead thing was just something that I thought was kinda neat but didn't really give it much more thought than that. To try and make up for my pun, how about these.

    1995 Fisher Grateful Dead bike, NOS and I even still have the original box:




    More pictures at https://mombat.org/1995_Fisher_Dead.htm

    Or the original prototype for this bike (owned by Bob Weir). We currently have the frame and will be building it up soon.





    Original paint by Prairie Prince. Couple of pics of Bob with the bike.



    Hopefully, this makes up for "Goatful Dead"

    NIce bike. It's cool to see airbrushing still alive after the advent of digital imaging. It's a neat art. If you've never watched an airbrush piece come together, you're missing out.

    A friend of mine is quite good and does some motorcycle art when he's not tattooing.
    I'm covered in beer.
