I would like to thank @Karate Chicken Industries
for the Marzocchi bomber 2001 model forks.

They add "looks" to the build for sure, but also their performance suprised me. The bike is functional on road, but those forks are amazing off road. I was riding around in some deep grass that had some serious but invisible ruts, I didn't even know they were there. Another day, same trail, on a bike without suspension, almost crashed on those "unseen" ruts.

In the early days of this build off there was talk of 2020 being the Chinese "year of the Rat". The headbadge is a recycled kids karate? award medallion.

Well, it's got Chinese writing anyways. :giggle:

I would think May 9 would of been the perfect opportunity for you to comment if you thought this was not a class 1 build.

Since you "don't like to cause trouble". :giggle:

Yeah, I guess I'm not the most alert, just realized that it was in class 1 yesterday. Wherever it ends up, it's ALL CLASS.
