If it wasn't mine, it was my friend Brad's - an 04' Enduro painted like an American flag with kandies.

I dug mine about as much as it was a wilder paint job, but the wow factor of Brad's was just cool...
wish I had some pics of Brad's, but i don't...so here's some of my old Schwinn..

I thought you went for the optional 'Puke' color scheme on your Hoss? Didn't want to pay the extra?

(What do you think about your Hoss, now that you've had it for awhile? They look like awesome bikes; my friend is still waiting for his.)
