  1. thats the one you were asking about colors for.. came up good.. enjoy your ride.
  2. Interesting to see USD forks on the older models, and a diferent swingarm.

    Green looks good, I've always loved the Kwaka greens :)
  3. mmmm - the green meanie :)

    I love that Kwaka green.
  4. Sweet....... aint kwaka's just so damn fine???
  5. sigh, reminders of the late beloved Gregg Hansford, there's nothing like a lime-green meanie.....
  6. It is a 1989 model. Do some of them not have the USD forks? I did notice that the swingarm was slightly different to the 1997 model in the pdf manual when I adjusted the chain tension and rear wheel alignment on the weekend.

    Mine has the damp and rebound adjusment as well but I haven't had a play yet (they are set pretty stiff) ... chalk and cheese compared with sir_bouncy's um I mean sir-b's gpx250 which has suspension like one of those hispanic pimp mobiles :LOL:

    P.S Glad to see a few fans of the green, I like it too :cool:

  7. Another great rider gone early, what was he Paul around 40 when he went.. must be 10 - 12 years ago now?
  8. When that bike grows up it wants to be a GIXXER.hahahahah
  9. Nice looking bike!
  10. Nah, it wants to be a bigger Meanie ... maybe a ZX-10R or 12R :p
  11. Why would it want to do that. hahahaha
