First of all I'm from the States, just stumbled upon this site by searching info on the Malcolm Smith mt. bike. Seems like more interest across the pond than here concerning these bikes and Alpinestars.

Story, back in 1989 I worked for Malcolm Smith at his warehouse in Riverside Ca. It was mainly motocross stuff, but then they dabbed into mt bikes for a bit. Somehow someone at work gave this to me because I was into mt. biking.
At the time I had my own Malcolm Smith comp that I was riding so I threw this frame in my parents attic.
Fast forward 22 years later and last w/end I found this still in the attic. I totally forgot.
Not sure how the Answer (Yeti) fork, stem and handlebar got on their, but glad they did!

Great find!!

AAA-thread this, excellent work OP.

Think I have some Alpinestars-litterature down in the basement buried with tons of other brochures
