    Ahhhhh.....thats better

    Got rid of the 888's and put on a Z150, lost the triple ring and put on an MRP. Lost the lightweight tyres for something meaty and grippy. Swapped out the 600# for a 500# spring. Got some Hope mini's to stick on it too. The rukus is now complete. Now I can get my Demo 9 rebuilt Will have some action pics for you soon.

    Sweet..

    looks real nice. Pics of the Demo coming soon, yeah?

    Now if you could just get rid of that hideously long seatpost. However probably not an option, just be careful.

    The Rukus was SLACK with the 888's. And i mean in angles and fun.

    The seat post comment was about the rukus. The demo never goes up under my (pedal) power, thats why i built the rukus up. Most of AKL's riding is pretty flat. To DH some serious travel is required.

    Thanks for the compliments people. Its taken many months of saving and patience (try finding a 2nd hand MRP for I-drives) to get both of these bikes running. But its worth the hard yards.

    RIDE ON
