S&M LAF 19" Top tube frame, put back together after 10 years

Maybe 11 years? I've owned this frame since it was new. Not many LAF's made with the 19" top tube, im told it was one batch of 10.  I had some of the parts still around, so i did what i could. The bars in the old pic were Suelo bars, but i put a set of Fat Rat bars on sometime in 08? I might have a picture with them on there on a flash drive somewhere? Had a set chromed for this rebuild. Forks in old picture were Suelo,  they broke around 09 or 2010?  Put on a set of Odyssey F25's. The Brickhouse stem was sitting in my toolbox, so it went back on. Same thing with the green Revenge brake. Fresh set of Revenge grips and Fat Rat barends. The barends in the old picture are Metal Bikes American made ends that i still have, but they are pretty rough. Oddy Monolever is the same lever as the old picture. KHE Stimulator pedals are the same as the old picture. The Profile cranks are long gone, Fit Indent in their place. I dont remember what happened to the Quamen sprocket, now with S&M Tuffman. Primo seat clamp and Oddy Intact post are the same as the old picture. S&M Hot Seat in the new picture may have been on here for a short time? Im kinda doubting it though. I still have the Hot Seat in the old picture, but its trashed. The Araya Super 7x rims are the same as the old picture and have been with me since 1999 or 2000. The Nankai freecoaster is the same hub as the old picture. Broke the axle of the Fly front hub in the old picture in 2010 or 2011? Decided to put my old Tree hub back in use.  One picture has Primo V Monster tires, the other has Odyssey Frequency G tires. The Frequency G's in the new picture are not the same tires from back then. The pegs are the same Ares pegs as the old pic also. All i need now is some decent weather to ride this thing for the first time in over 10 years!

I believe the guy who has yours, has Sparkers red 19" LAF also. I tried a couple times to make a deal that would send your black frame back to you, no dice.

You’re correct, he might have McKinney’s too. They’re in good hands. Thanks for that Matt, much appreciated!

In good hands for sure. I can't even remember all of the stuff I've sold to him.
