My 755 that I've had since new - although, looking through all the Proflex forums here, I'm wondering if it may be a 756. Searching for a new front mech (now found) brought me to this site originally but I'm loving seeing all these beautifully restored bikes. After a year or so of fun riding when I first bought it, it was relegated to my dad's garage for 10 years while work and kids got in the way, resurrected early last year with a mammoth service and hunt for spares. I never really got on with the Girvin forks but seeing all the bikes on here made me realise why I bought it in the first palce - I think it was a beautiful bike. I may have to search out a set of Vector 2's!

My 1991 RF-1 before going to be painted.
Very very few like this were produced and this model is considered like the first production full suspension bike in the world.

The rear arm was neon orange BITD. I'll try to keep it like it was from new.

Here's a picture of my '96 Proflex Beast, I picked up up from someone and had to modernize it a bit to get it to riding condition and it still gives me some problems from time to time since I don't have the money to fix it like I should, but god, is it fun to ride...
