Why do I want this?

I am assuming it must be total junk, but it seems too funny to pass up! http://cgi.ebay.com/Shockster-Add-on...QQcmdZViewItem
Add on rear suspension for that hardtail suckfest you've been riding!!! How could you have ever lived without it?

Never seen anything like that before. Yikes. Don't quite see how it's supposed to mount to the ht frame. Funny none the less.

Those abominations have shown up on ebay periodically for a while now. I think I'm going to treat my HT to the hacksaw and my arc welder this winter instead

hahahaha IT'S PLASTIC!!!!!

Yeah.. I use to be active on the Cavalier/Sunfire enthusiast forums and there were always people selling ram air intake (dryer hose) w/ a 90 degree bend (rain gutter) and paper printed gauges. More often then not.. There was always a sucker who would buy into the idea.. :-/

Unfortunately, I don't have a band saw . . . yet. And at least it's a touch more finesseful than my cutting torch

Wait.. It's not plastic.. It weighs 3.34lbs. Anyway, It's a piece of crap so.. I guess it doesn't matter.

Very suitable for x-mart upgrades. I wonder what'd it'd feel like to double up on your rear suspension?
