Just finished after several months of hard work!
I know that's a Vintage bike but with 8.92 kg it's also still a light bike :mrgreen:

Here you can find tech info and more pics :

Wow!!!!! That build brings back some memories! I love the 800 shifter with the shark attack grips. That is also about as close to an all american build as you can get.

I'm not one to normally get too excited by mountain bikes....


But that is one stunning build! And great weight to match!

Awesome bike and great paint job. I like the way the crank was painted especially.

This takes me back to my early days of MTB riding. I ran Kooka cranks on my MTB too! Klein frames and paint jobs where the Holy Grail.

Nice. The colors. The WR Compositi hubs (rare even here in Italy).

Molto bella.

Only few pair of straight-pull hubs were build by WR in 1994 and 1995 :mrgreen:

It's not a paint job but a special anodization very rare like other special from Kooka like "nightstorm" ones... :thumbup:
