First of all a big thank you to Randy for letting these two bikes go. I'm very excited to now have an example of each of the first three production years of the DB Manitous. I'll write up a full story once the bikes arrive in CA, but for now here are some pics:
1988 Manitou - Includes both the rigid and first generation suspension fork. Custom Bradbury modified front and rear hubs and IRD progressive U-brakes on frame and rigid fork
1990 Manitou - First generation Manitou suspension fork, cantilever mounts, custom front and rear hubs and Manitou stem
Full restoration of these two sometime this summer... stay tuned!
