Back in the day the Muddy Fox was quite popular with it's paws all over the tubes. They even made wheel covers with the logo to match. Didn't see them on Retrobike though (or I missed them). Any Foxes out there?

Just about to build up a Muddy Fox interactive, bought main frame minus swingarm, and took another 18 months trying to find a swingarm. Main frame came from a garage clearout, via Ebay. The swingarm is nearly new from a bike shop.

From the ones I do see floating around still I think it's likely most of them have rotted. Some very poorly looking rusty examples about.

A friend of mine has an Aluminium in his parent's garage - seems strange to think that aluminium was once so uncommon that Muddy Fox named their aluminium bike the "Aluminium". It sat above the Explorer in the range. I think it's an '88 with U-brake and 6 speed Deore / XT mix. It came equipped with Suntour but we rebuilt it one sunny afternoon about ten years ago.

Loved Press Gang !!

Hubby had an Explorer and broke the frame then became an Orbit man for a while. I'm awaiting an Explorer for the right price for those memory days, as well as a revell Romany.
