Interesting how tastes change over time. Today people want things blacked out not shined up. Some of the links are dead but looks like some interesting things.
I noticed that there were no fork upgrades, PCIII, shock, grab bar removal, etc...
Either way, that bike would still look right at home today, and that tells you something.
Edit: I wonder how those tires compare to modern tires... some 15 years of tech, how much better are the tires?
