It has been long years I’ve been with this bike and lots of downhill fun, tumbles and falls. Now it is time to let it go as I’ve upgraded to a proper size for me and insufficient space for me to keep both. This is an old school single pivot swing arm downhill bike customised in December 2002 with new frame and components. It wasn’t bought as a complete bike. Its weight is +/- 18 kg. The frame was produced by Taiwan Hodaka Industrial Co. Ltd. (http://www.hodaka.com.tw/). Still in good condition and definitely can take downhill bashing of drops and jumps like any other downhill bike. The bike was used but never abused. After all the years there are some scratches on the frame and fork body but not on the stanchion. Even though the frame made by a Taiwanese company, surprisingly the quality and durability is equal as most western brand downhill bike.
