Original Grafton first gen cranks, Grafton Speed Controllers and brake levers. Rare Grafton Speedcase bottom bracket and not pewter but silver Grafton crank arm caps (good luck finding them).
Super rare pewter anodized 1.25 high rise Zooka stem, quick releases and Moby post. F"n awesome!

Here is an early Mountain Goat Whiskeytown racer. These pictures are interesting because this is the paint job I think most people recognize Mountain Goat frames by. Also, check out the mountain goat on the top of the crown of the fork, how nice.

The Lawwill rear suspension seems to live on forever. Originally used on the Gary Fisher full suspension frame, then Lawwill released his own frames, it then went to Yeti, then Schwinn/Yeti then to Tomac and then it went to Rotec and now maybe some obscure garage company is planning to take over the DH world with a new version of the infamous Lawwill rear suspension.
To make a long story short, the interesting details in all this is that essentially the suspension works the same way as the original Gary Fisher prototype worked back in 1991. Back then it was called the ultimate suspension frame, so why hide it now?!
You would think these old school Tomac frames are collectors items these days but they are not, as with the original Intense M1 SL, you can pick up a used Tomac 204 Magnum quite cheap.

Depending how you view things this frameset is either horribly outdated or still just as cool and functional as it was back in 1992.
