The "style" today of white wall tires (tan wall) with the seat all the way down looks a little silly to me. Why bother at all with a seat. Just mount a big mushroom head... LOL smile

Haha, I'm 40. You should have heard the comments about my layback post when I first posted a pic!

Great looking bike! Great find as well! Nos buys to me, are the best. Instead of feeling like Christmas, it's more like opening a treasure chest, haha.

Thanks Man. Yeah I was just looking for something to kick around with my 6 yr old boy. Craigslist had nothing but thrashed bikes. I was getting ready to pull the trigger on a 14 Haro 350.1 shipped to my door for $399.00 and no sales tax. Just happened to see this "last one" full cromo Colony. $700-800 bike back 6 years ago. Real happy with the NOS. Its funny that it is already "out of style".... Lol

What are you riding now?

I read some of the posts from "people on the internet" actually from this site. Some had no problems and some had complaints. From my perspective they delivered on every aspect. They were always responsive to my emails, bike was discounted heavily, they took Paypal, shipped UPS ground with tracking for free, and bike/box was in "fine" condition. Their website is not stellar, but it looks like they move a lot of bikes through Acebmx and Americancycle.com. My experience was good and I would do business with them again. So, I would not from "my experience" call them a scammer. I was being over the top for entertainment value above. I'm cool. Hope you are too. smile

your killing me with the seat, im old school too but I just cant have the seat that high, when I was a kid I learned that if I wanted to jump over stuff I had to lower my seat or have no seat at all. I was the only kid with a Huffy Sigma with a low ass seat lol.

Lol! About the only jumping I might be doing is over curbs. I will save the circus stunts for the rest of you. Only jumping I did or ever will do is on a motorcross bike. Cheers!
