Header wrap!

Yes it is Header wrap! All for the looks...
It's for getting the "old race car" look!
Pretty cool, right?

Hey instrumetal4, what kind of bike is that? I have a 24 inch bike that has forks that are just like that, but it was painted when I got it and I don't know what it is.

Oh yeah, thanks for the white wall link wethepeople those are cheap!

I have a frame with identical dropouts, no idea of the brand. It has a leading link suspension fork.... probably be a drop-in for that frame.

Old suspension bikes are wicked, the designs on them are so weird.
