1988 Ozone Method Air

1988 ozone method:air.  as far as i'm aware, the only surviving white ozone currently in a collectors hands.  it's m y daily rider, but gets the respect it deserves.  definitely one of the bikes/companies that changed the shape of the industry.  much coveted by me for many years, now finally i have one.  complete survivor build minus the rubber, no restoration involved.

Re: 1988 Ozone Method Air

Perfect build.
I wouldn't have done a thing differently.

The parts mix reminds me of my exact bike in 1989-92... besides the frame set of course. I was never able to track down an ozone.

Beautiful, man!

I really dig your choice of components, especially the grips on the bars; Pete Brandt and Eric Emerson style

Cnc6306, cheers man, much appreciated.  Olskuldj, yeah man... those guys, the start of that hardcore period, anarchic adjustments etc... All definitely inspiration on this one.  Cheers for the comment.  Heath.
