I just got this off of an auction site...

it looks in a right mess, wheels don't look original and the chainset is vile.. the whole thing looks like it's been left in a field for the last ten years..

My question is: does anyone know what it is? I suspect it is a 89 Sorceror, the colour looks almost right and it's got some half decent components on it, even if they look a bit tired.. but the stem is wrong and it doesn't have a model name on it anywhere apparently.

I dunno maybe someone can shed some light on it for me..

I'm going to strip it and start again, get it working properly...

thanks for your help.

There doesn't seem to be much on MF:s, only a review of a MF Ti from 1992:

thanks, those were what led me to believe it might be a sorceror in the first place! but the paint isn't quite right and the stem is different, the stickers are different too...

Also it has a u-brake, although I have a courier comp and a pathfinder that both have u-brakes so something weird happenned there..

Anyway thanks for the links...

I'm picking it up at the weekend so maybe I'll find out more then..
