    KHS Special Touring- Commuter

    The fork is not bent...must be the picture. I filed the brake slot lower plus some other tricks and it didn't work. I will start looking for some Shimano XT cantilevers as they have been known to work. Sent from my moto x4 using Tapatalk

    KHS Special Touring- Commuter

    ‘84 Mongoose ATB

    Nice bike. I have an 85 without the cool bi-plane fork. I need to rebuild the wheels as the spokes are rusted. Where did you find that shiny mylar tape? I need some blue.
