Default I am creating a MONSTER...

Hey guys,

my first post here. I just wanted to introduce you my 1991 Monster Fat build-up. The frame is almost NOS. It was built up for one time by one of the former owners (I am the 3rd owner) but never ridden before. Hope it's OK that I link my images from a german forum.








And that's how it looks like so far...
