If you remember anything about these to share I'd sure appreciate it. I enjoy having what history I can find on my steel rides.

Thanks!
It was a long time ago so I don't recall the details of these two rides. I'll bet I used Reynolds 725 main tubes and probably the first generation of my custom chainstays. More info that that would require some digging through old paperwork.

I hope you like the ride.

This blue and hot pink JK Special just went into the back of the truck to start it's long journey to Kuala Lumpur. It should be there in less than a week and then get built up and used on what I understand are some awesome roads there.
