Nice Bike.

I found this one with Original Skyway tuf forks and 1st Gen SE fork decals.

I know it's not a complete survivor like the one you found but it is OG Blue with RARE forks and decals.

Sold it a couple years ago to a SE collector...

I remember looking at that a good while back, damn shame it had no decals on it though.

That's such a cool survivor, and a very desirable original color.  It's almost one of those bike some people would say no way dude, no one had a bike like that.  I say way.  Perfect example, too.   smile
