My brothers 2008 Rockhopper was starting to feel the affects of time so as a birthday present ive given it a new lease of life.


Stripped.

Then off to the powder coater for a nice new Kawasaki green jacket.




Custom decals fitted before a coat of clear lacquer to seal them in.






Coming back together.

Finished.!








New toys fitted:

Powder coated frame with custom decals
Cane Creek forty headset
ZTR crest with superstar hubs
Fox F100 RLC 32 forks
XT 10 speed cassette
XT Shadow+ Derailer
XT I-spec shifter
Race face BB and 1 x 10 crank
XT Chain
Lizard Skin grips
XT Brake setup with ice tech rotors 180F 160R

Now weighs in at a respectable 23.5 LBS

So what do you think? Will he be pleased?

Wow, looks awesome! Better than a new bike in the sense that you put all the work into it and he gets to keep riding the same frame he has enjoyed many miles on. Well done!

Good for you. Nice work! Hopefully he is as creative for you as you were for him when time comes...

Tell your brother we all said Happy B-day! ;)
