I got me a fully for cheap. It is a german built Mifa, steel frame, 26" wheels, single pivot design: The suspension is working ok, even the brakes were still properly adjusted. Gearing not really functioning, rusty or stuck, don't know, don't care. After I discovered IGH I don't want to go back to deraillers. If I could find a way to use this 1 1/8" fork on my 1" headtube green boomer I will. I happen to have a wonderful air suspension Rock Shox (XC32?) I could use on this one. If I don't come with a solution I won't bother though. This swap is just an idea. This stanchions rubber protectors would look killer on the "moto" bike though. Fork: Went to the lower earth (the cellar), this is where the forsaken parts dwell. My quest brought fruit: I got a single chainring crankset - 38t if I remember correctly. Also an ahead stem, and a seat. The rear shock is around 1cm longer than the one on the bike, this will raise the rear a bit. I was ready to sacrifice the boomer moto build if I could mount its wheels on the fully, but the swingarm is too tight. Can you guess why this shock has such a long bolt - 15 years ago I put on a fully two shock s. While it looked wild this made the rear suspension non existant, so I removed this one in a few weeks. Then the bike got stolen. Then I had a hardtail stolen. Now you know why my bikes stay in my living room and I carry them three stories through a spiral stairwell. I checked the LBS website and it said they happen to have a "threaded to ahead" adapter for 1 1/8 threaded fork. The website have a function that shows if the part is available, if it is in their central warehouse, or if it is not available at all at the time. It said "immediately available". Nope, didn't have it. I tried the LBS in the next village hoping they might have one, but they are on a holiday. So I will have to call that corpulent fella from the Internets again, at least he never lets me down. So far I only did a wheel mock up, well, the front one can stay as it is now, I need some anti-rotation spacers for the rear. Can I just sand the front rim, I want both rims the same color? Or perhaps blacken the rear rim??? I have black Shimano V-brakes to replace these silver ones. It is a coaster brake so I will remove the rear V-brake, also derailler and gears (Sram gearing) will be removed. The cockpit is ugly, nothing to see there, typical vintage MTB monstrosity, I won't keep a thing from it. I will need a chain as well, might take something colored, maybe half-link, will see. No hurry.
