2014 Premium Products LaVida Loca

Got this first run from John @ Haro.  Wild looking built-in seat clamp!  Cool color; looks RAD with the copper!

COPPERHEAD!Haro John sent me this frame in exchange for an issue with another frame I had.  Thanks man!
I am liking the look of this, it was a 2014 first run of the LaVida frame that was supposed to come out Xmas 2014.
It ended up being released for the 2016 line with some differences.  Look for it then!  Here's Johnny talking about it at Interbike 2014.
If it can stand up to this guy, I think it is good.  It was supposed to be for Connor Lodes but didn't go that way, lucky for me. wink
This was my first NS rider to try out street/park tricks.  Plan was to use this first to spare my Lineage frame, however, I was not expecting to like it so much since I was not sure what I was gonna get from John.  I ended up just giving my Lineage frame to a family member since I always just ride this one!
I am pretty pleased with the feel of it, first NS ride and I think I get it now. A shout out to Kip at MasterBlasterPlanet for helping me with this build. Getting me the parts and mainly for giving me some tech advise on the phone. He always answered even when I could tell I was a pain. Haha! Thanks man!!
Thanks for looking!

They were around $340 for both front and rear, pre-built by Shadow.  Got a decent deal from Kip at MasterBlasterPlanet.

I think Lenny @ Melton's said he can get them, too.  I did not know he was the preferred Museum dealer for so many, until after I got them. lol

Kip is a good guy, too.

Thanks!  Yeah, it is cool

I am going to use it first, then try out the Lineage.  I hear they are very similar, though.

I will be updating pics soon, I have all the parts I need now.

They are out. I saw them on Danscomp when I was looking at the Sakers.

They are sold out right now, though... I am pretty positive I saw them, though.

Re: 2014 Premium Products LaVida Loca

Update made to pics to show off new look.

Created some decals I think look much better.  Tried to stick with similar flow to Premium decals on other frames.
I changed the parts to all copper and moved the Lineage cranks to this.  Looks great!  I think...

If you are looking at this, please to let me know what you think. cool

Re: 2014 Premium Products LaVida Loca

Finally got it done, rides great!  Went with dual brake cables, amazing how well they grip.

Updated the pics, but it is still a work in progress getting them how I want them.

PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS..
This is ONE BAD BITCH! COPPERHEAD!

Heres my profound, life changing statement.
Lifes a bitch..PASS ME A BEER.

They're reacting and that's wonderful. It's better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react - do whatever's in your power to move the audience, and if that's where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.
