    Welcome!

    You just gave me an idea of how to fix my slightly bent forks on my Hawthorne.

    I shoulda thought of this months ago. Now a good set of handlebars will make it a klunker.

    Welcome to RRB, @Sirrey ! Your bike is rad.

    Well, yeah.... that, plus some knobbies, and a trail-ready gear ratio, sure. :grin:

    Brooks is optional, but the one it´s got on there now has got to go!
