    When other kids were reading dirty magazines, I was up late drooling on pictures like this in the latest issue of Mountain Bike Action.

    Wow, that is freakin' awesome. What are the doodads on the shock body, though?
    Also the brake "arch" that bridges the seatstays is really interesting. Not only functional, it looks like a Marzocchi "M" bridge from a Z-series fork that came years later.

    Shock is a Risse Terminator. You can still order one if you (ahem) want one... http://www.risseracing.com/airshocks_terminator.shtml

    Those doodads are the compression and rebound circuit adjustments...they're actually pretty functional. The brace was an aftermarket piece made by TWP.

    Heads up kiddo's- that's some history right there. The rear end was made by Amp and was utilized on many different mfg's front triangles. No one knew didly squat about suspension back then, but some dude name Horst knew!
