Default It's ALIVE!!....

Well it's almost alive.

On an impulse I bought the large '92 Monster here on Fatcogs a couple of weeks back. It arrived in rough condition but certainly will make a good rider. The UN52 Sealed BB was totally seized! All of the rust is just surface rust so I am not too concerned. I had the nice Red Tange fork which fit perfectly & an assortment of beat up non-period correct XT parts but functionally everything should work great. I even fashioned a rack mount for my Blackburn Rack out of a Yakima Mighty mount; the mono-stay is nearly the same diameter as the Yakima Cross Bars!






I will be fetching the groceries in style on my new Monster once it's complete.

Jon

yes definitely and the Tange fork fits really good.
Are you sure that the rack mount is stable enough?

I am no structural engineer but those Yakima Might Mounts are quite strong; designed for carrying items on the roof of your car at highway speeds. When torked down the rack has no movement. The panier will probably not exceed 40 lbs loaded; seems very stable . Since this photo I have added a set of fenders to the bike too! It rides great! Full M737/739 XT group.
