    Re: Mudcury now "Hg 80" or "Hg Quicksilver"

    Well I'm finished sanding down the frame! It looks real good...now to strip the fork of its paint, and the paint someone sprayed over the new crank I'm going to use! I forgot to take pics so I should have some up tomorrow!

    I got the seat itself off of a fellow member in a trade/sale type deal. Then I had it reupholstered and had a custom tooled design made by rat-a-tac. I love it, well worth the money.
