Here is a pic of Clay's new/old mountain bike. It was the last EWR ever made by Innovations, and was never delivered to Jay. It is an extra small frame, with a 19" top tube length, so toe over lap is a slight problem. From the serial number, it looks as though fabrication was completed on June 5th 1997, so I am not sure if Jonny B did the welding or if it was Bill, or myself. It hung on the wall, unpainted, in the Centre Hall shop for a couple of years. One day between jobs I decided to spray some light blue met., lay down some decals, and finished it off with some matte clear. I was hoping this would motivate Bill to sell it, instead it hung on the wall in his basement for a few more years. At some point Rody grabbed it for his son, and built it up so that he could cruise the trials. Colten has since out grown this cool retro frame, so it was handed down to Clay, with the condition that when he was done with it, it would go to the guys at First Flight.
