    Update on my 51, just got done bagging the front today.

    Thanks again to Phil (Rusty Pipes) and Alex Gambino for all the answers to my many stupid questions along the way.

    Rusk, set up in front is the same as Phils, bags with dropped uprights.

    Brown and Down, wheels are Black with a shit load of Red Flake in the clear, but they do almost have a root bear look to them.

    Ill get some more pics tomorrow.....
     
  12. Good stuff...I'm becoming a big fan of that suspension setup. Have you had a chance to take it out for a spin?

  18. By the sound of the weather forcast, you got a whole lot of time for working on the back and forth, as well as the up and down. Just fired up the heater in my garage.-MIKE:D :cool:
