2001 Dragonfly Submachine
Fred's last bike yet...a rider,from a rider...
This is my brother Fred's last bike he rode.He started riding in 1988,and throughout the years we fed on each other,on flat,street,and all sorts of riding.This was his last known bike,a dragonfly submachine.he gave it to me a few years ago,thinking I would sell it the next day,yeah,right.In fact,I told him I did,only to take my time and try and do something with it,Now,fred is not a mellow rider,and in fact is more reckless than I am,I have acquired some finesse in the last years,specially after the museum,so he did not reach that stage,lol(nothing like some good bro bashing)still,he will flip when I send him this link ,as the bike looks TONS better than when I got it,it had layers of black spray paint over the gorgeous metal orange,so I stripped it(took a few days at that),the bars were really cut,so I re-welded some bar portions,the pegs were all beat up,and the seat it had,well,u get the picture,I ll see if I find a before pic...as is,the bike has some pretty good components from the era:
