We have it on fairly good authority that @scottbikes_offical assembled this bike originally for local actor and musician @jimmy_nail_official_ . Great story, I can’t imagine the auf weidershen pet star riding a mtb but he must have done. Heat treated cromo frame construction with @ritcheylogic dropouts was jimmy’s material of choice, steel is real and there was a lot of engineering going on all along the big river when he was a lad. Cook brothers cranks allow for reliable pedal attachments on which a pair of very smart looking crocodile shoes could be placed. @rockshox judys keep the front end planted and an XTR groupo keeps this thing going forward and stopping swiftly. A very nice bike back in the day built for a local legend. @doctorwoolley are you in a position to confirm this build was indeed jimmy’s? @aufwiedersehenpet #jimmynail #steelisreal #scottmtb #scottpro #cookbros #xtr #shimanoxtr #newcastle #aufweidersehnpet #crocodileshoes #bigriver #weyaye #geordies #cycling #cyclinglife #rockshoxjudy @c4tini
