    it wasn't intentional. The boys at IF used the wrong paint colors.

    I am still waiting on a couple of parts but here is the beginning.
    I still need Green or Red Hubs. Also waiting for my frame to be painted.
    Wanted the Paul Rasta levers that just sold but $250 was way too much.

    What kind of levers are those? Are they "V" or cantilever levers? Gravity Research? I have a set, but don't know what to do with 'em.

    I love that DeKerf paint.
    Have owned 2 in the past and regret selling both.
    Waiting for a 29er to show up at some point.

    They are V. Kinda made the mistake of grouping them with this.
    I have Red Pauls that I will use.

    Here's a lovely 1992 Rhygin Team I was tempted to take home late last year. Has some of those lovely rasta brake levers.

    I didn't know Glenn was willing to sell that one. According to CJ, those painted forks were not common.

    He reluctantly accepted an offer I made, so I gather it was a tough decision for him to let it go. Glenn is super nice. I really wanted to get this in my grubby little paws to use as a race bike, but the timing ended up not working. Maybe in the future....

    Ha, Yes, I am old and I live in the middle of Pierce County Tea Party Central Headquarters, but for 12 years now, I still have had my Nader for President campaign sign hanging in the front window.

    Finally a place I can show off my Bonty without being embarrassed . When I restored this I already had a set of rasta decals lying around, so I thought I'd paint it to match, but it got kind of out of control with the parts. Oh well, maybe some day I'll put it up for BOTM, since it almost meets the anodized parts requirement for that.



    I changed the stem and bars to a Bontrager bonded/riveted set, everything else is the same.

    Dudes, it's weird to see my own bike on this thread. That's my Bonty in the OP. It's an all-original '99 Privateer. Everything on the bike is Bontrager. I even have the original Bontrager and Rock Shox manuals.

    Yes, I and I do ride it off road. I'll probably sell it this year, because it's a little small for me. Hopefully I will find a buyer who understands how cool it is, and won't repaint it or do anything stupid with it.

    Some more pics:

    Yeah, sorry about that, I didn't know the protocol for posting other people's bikes, but I really wanted to include a Bontrager. As it happens, I actually picked up a rastified race yesterday, I'll be posting pictures soon!

    Humboldtnorth, that looks like mine. All original except for pedals and bars?

    Do you rebuild the shocks every 9 hours like the manual says to?

    I bought the Bontrager on Craigslist, it was in some guys basement, and had never really been ridden, still had the nubs on the tires. I believe the bars are stock, they are Bontrager Crowbars. All I did was replace the shifters, which were froze up, with Paul Thumbies and Dura Ace 9 speed bar end shifters. And put some pedals on. I'll probably keep this one pretty much stock.

    1991 Kona Explosif Pro with original factory paint. Explosif Pros were big bucks so Kona would paint you one with any color scheme.

    I am in awe of these beautiful rigs! I now have a mission for my 94 Marin Team! I am already painting my 09 Specialized P-1 all mountain Yellow. I could add some green, and I already had a few red parts on it in anticipation of the color scheme. I've been wanting it to look older than it is since the day I bought it, which is the reason for the repaint. Looking for an old school late 80's/early 90's Specialized shade of yellow.

    Hi,

    What is the size of the headtube? My son picked up one of these bikes and I wanted to surprise him with some parts, like a new stem. He has the exact same frame, fork, etc.

    Thanks
