1996 3D Zerox  

By the mid-1990's having a full suspension bike in your line was almost a must.  There were still lots of folks trying to sort out designs, many of these would die a deserved death.  While this is far from the worst design tried, it doesn't rank in the top handful either.  This particular design came out in 1996 and most of the parts are from the 1996-1997 era.  Serial number appears to be "BOB" so this one may have been made for someone specific.  The original fork may have been a Judy SL which would have matched the color of the swing arm.  If we run across one, maybe we'll put 'er on the bike?
