Hello everyone,

I'm offering something here which seems to be a bit of a unicorn, in the hope that someone doing a retro build can make good use of it. I'm no expert on the topic, but I get the impression that it will be valuable for someone out there....

The fork in question is a Bullet Brothers "ZZYZX", designed for Downhill but can also be used on a MTB or Cruiser. It was fitted to a Felt Zero Sen Cruiser when I bought it:

This is an opportunity to purchase one of the most iconic Downhill forks of the 90's (so says the internet) in near new condition.

* Triple crown design, 6" (150mm) travel, 1 1/8" diameter.
* Fittings for quick release hubs / axles.
* Red tubing, branding / decals removed, reflective tape on the crowns.
* Made in USA.
* Designed by Hanebrink.
* Similar design to the Marzocchi Monster, apparently also sold as the Stratos MX-6.

The fork has been barely used, is in great condition and has only minor cosmetic scratches (see photos) from where the previous owner installed a drum brake tensioner.

These were seriously expensive when new and I understand that they are quite rare as a result. This unit is particularly interesting as it is in almost perfect condition. It is suitable for a retro-bike build or perhaps on another cruiser / chopper where a seriously heavy duty look is sought.

Manufacture date is unknown, but my understanding is that it was bought new around 2006 and then installed on the Felt Cruiser which was subsequently seldom used due to illness and therefore stored indoors.

Price by negotiation. To be transparent, I would like it to go to a good home, and am _not_ seeking silly money like these guys are asking (US$500 including shipping!!!!):

If the fork is of interest, please PM me with your email and we can start a conversation. I have more high res photos, measurements etc. and am happy to organise shipping for the right buyer. Item is currently located in Germany.

OK, no idea why but embedding photos works in a reply but not the original post... here's a few further images, more available upon request.
