Default EZR's 2nd full suspension Project

Well it's almost time to retire my current Motor Bicycle for an upgrade.
Frame will be the proto-type for the production frames from Pipelyne Manufacturing. I got a few goodies in the mail yesterday and will have more to come.
My forks. Manitou DH Dorado forks with Carbon fiber upper cases.

The fork are pretty light because there isn't any oil in them yet but when filled, they're around 7.5 lbs.

Thanks Teacher, I just sack away alittle every pay period in a money rate account and I use that for my toys.
The frame will be made of Chrome Moly tubing. Dean already has started the R&D process and we should be seeing some progress soon.

I don't know what the price will be but I know Dean will be making frames for both Chinese HT and the Italian motors. If there's a demand for a 4 stroke motor frame, I'm sure PipeLyne will make frames for those as well.
