He cut it off. On purpose if you can believe it!

There's a whole build thread on DTT where people kept telling him that his frame was going to break. I guess it's holding up so far.

Tires might be as old too? Do they still make those tread patterns? Looks like one is an old Dunlop K70 and the other is an old Pirelli?

They still make K70's, in 19 and 18 inch sizes, and they are not bad dual sport tires.

Dunlop also makes new K81s (TT100). They use modern rubber now, and they're a lot better than the old ones. The old Trials Universal was a better dual sport tire than the K70.

There are companies making new 3/4 helmets and bubble visors, although I don't know why in the hell anyone would actually ride in one.

Because they are awesome. I've got an idea. Let's start another helmet debate! We'll do it just like the last time, except this time we'll make it TEN WHOLE PAGES instead of the usual five pages! This is going to be awesome!
